Numbers from NBC Sports show the Buffalo market posted a 12.1 rating for the game, which was shown on NBC Sports and CBC in the Buffalo market. That easily bested the No. 2 market in Minneapolis, which posted an 8.5 rating.

NBC posted a 9.4 rating (16 share) for its prime time coverage of the Winter Olympics Friday night. Buffalo has generally finished in the top 10 in market ratings nationally for most Olympics broadcasts.
