NBC Sports Network earned a 2.8 overnight rating as the New York Rangers extended the NHL season by beating the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night.

The rating is the third-highest for a Final game on NBCSN, behind Games 2 and 3 from last year's Chicago Blackhawks-Boston Bruins series.

The 2.8 mark is up 65 percent from a 1.7 overnight for Kings-New Jersey Devils Game 4 on NBCSN in 2012. Last year's Blackhawks-Bruins Game 4 aired on NBC and drew a 4.6 overnight.

NBCSN finished with a 1.7 rating and 2.893 million viewers for Kings-Rangers Game 3, down 15 percent and 27 percent, respectively, from a 2.0 rating and 3.964 million viewers for Blackhawks-Bruins Game 3 last year.
