Buffalo News reported:

The Buffalo Sabres had one victory Thursday night – in prime time ratings.

The National Hockey League team’s 3-2 loss in a shootout to Montreal scored a 10.9 rating on MSG over the three hours, which indicates fans are hopeful at the start of the season. The rating peaked at 14.0 for the overtime and the shootout.

The rating was almost 50 percent higher than the 7.4 rating for last season’s opener, a 4-1 loss to Montreal in a game that star Jack Eichel was out with an injury. The Sabres averaged a 6.2 rating for the entire 2016-17 season.

Thursday’s rating was in the ballpark of the 10.7 rating for the 3-1 loss in the season opener against Ottawa in Eichel’s first season in 2015-16.
