The New York Rangers skate into the playoffs tomorrow night after a strong regular season on MSG Network. The regional sports network saw a 36 percent jump in Rangers games during the 2011-12 season among Households. That rating was also the highest for the Blueshirts on MSG since the 2008-09 season.
Not just the Households saw an increase. The average ratings in all demographics saw a spike for the year, especially among young adults–21 to 34– with a startling 150 percent improvement.
The Rangers open the “second season” at home against the Ottawa Senators. MSG has exclusive local game coverage tomorrow night starting at 7.
