Bill Beacon of the Canadian press has put together an interesting look at night number one of the new NHL.
By the numbers the night included some of the following:
95 goals in fifteen games.
An average of 6.3 goals per game.
275,447, the number of fans in attendance in 15 NHL cities.
11 of 15 sell outs.
2.1 million television viewers, a one night record.
Guess we all missed hockey after all!
