    NBC earned a 4.0 overnight rating for the Kings’ Stanley Cup-clinching Game Six win over the Devils last night, up slightly from a 3.9 for Bruins-Canucks Game Six last year. The 4.0 marks the best overnight for the Kings-Devils series. The game earned a 13.6 local rating in L.A. (THE DAILY). AWFUL ANNOUNCING's Matt Yoder writes Kings-Devils "produced good hockey, but it was always going to struggle in the ratings." Yoder: "While it's a disappointment for the NHL, it shouldn't be treated as some kind of death blow.
