HOCKEYTOWN: In N.Y., Richard Sandomir reports NBC's broadcast of Red Wings-Penguins Game Three drew an 18.2 rating in Detroit, 14% above ESPN's coverage of Pistons-Celtics Eastern Conference Finals Game Five. Sandomir notes "hockey's win over basketball was partly because of its game being on NBC, a broadcast network, and the NBA game being seen on a cable network" (N.Y. TIMES, 5/30).
