We’ll get to the doubleheader numbers as I get them later this morning, but for now, a piece of good news for NBC on Saturday, as the networks broadcasting playoff hockey continue to see positive dividends.

The double overtime thriller between the Bruins and Capitals in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series drew a 1.5 overnight rating, up 36% from the same date last year (PHX/DET, Game 2: 1.1). It was also up 25% from the same date two years ago (BOS/BUF, Game 2: 1.2).

This is the best overnight for an opening weekend playoff game since 2009 (PIT/PHI, Game 3: 1.7). It was a better rating than all but one of NBC’s Conference Quarterfinal telecasts since 2010.

Numbers will be available for Sunday’s doubleheader within a few hours.
