According to ESPN, the Kings and Hawks set an all-time record for viewers of a non-Final game with Game 7.
That makes sense. I mean, you had the two best teams in the league in two huge markets battling for the right to play for the Cup after one of the most intense 7-game series in recent memory so of course a lot of people watched it.
Here's the thing though. The previous record holder was a 1996 Eastern Conference Final game between the Penguins and the Panthers.
What the hell???
