Also, Hockey's Future has an excellent article on former Lancer Paul Stastny.

“[He’s] just playing really good hockey. Nobody expected that [he] could be that good and basically [he and Wolski] are helping us every game so we are glad we have them on the team,” said Milan Hejduk.

In a press release distributed earlier this week, the expansion New York Titans of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) announced that their Jan. 27 tilt against the Rochester Knighthawks featured on Sportsnet New York (SNY) registered a higher Nielsen television rating than its head-to-head competition, New York Islanders hockey on Fox Sport New York (FSNY) and the New Jersey Devils hockey on MSG.

The Titans-Knighthawks game earned a .14 rating on SNY for its 8:00 to 10:15 p.m. Saturday telecast, while the Islanders-Sabres game on FSNY from 7:00 to 9:45 p.m. on Saturday earned a .11 rating.

The Sabres are the tops in the Eastern Conference and a favorite to be one of the two teams in the Stanley Cup Finals this season.

The Titans other competition, a New Jersey Devils-Florida Panthers game on MSG from 7:30 to 10:00 p.m., earned a .01 rating according to Nielsen.

And what exactly does a .01 rating mean?

According to a story published Friday in the New York Times, it means that 736 of over 7 million homes in the viewing area, tuned in to watch the second-best team in the Eastern Conference during the 7:30 to 10 p.m. time slot.


And so do 736 other fans.

736 out of 7,000,000
