newjerseydevils.com – Hockey fans tuned-in in strong numbers for the first round of the 2009 NHL playoffs on MSG Plus to watch the Devils battle through seven games with the Carolina Hurricanes. The Devils garnered their highest rated first-round playoff series in 12 years, finishing with a 1.36 HH RTG (101,100 households) average on MSG Plus. The Devils notched a double-digit increase over their first-round matchup last year.

Fans that watched Tuesday's Game 7 helped the Devils score their highest ratings of the first round.
