Stanley Cup playoffs do alright on NBC

The numbers below are in millions. The are dwarfed by the Super Bowl and the World Series but for hockey in the U.S. they are decent. Not close to a record but if you drop the two games on Versus (games 3 and 4) then the NBC only average is 5.4 million which is still not at record levels but enough to get the NHL happy that have been chasing NBC.
