How big was the Canada-Russia game north of the border? It earned the highest audience ever for TSN, Canada's equivalent of ESPN. A record audience of 6.88 million watched on TSN and French counterpart RDS, and the audience peaked at 9.3 million during the third period of Russia's 5-3 win.
The audience of 6.23 million TSN smashed the previous record of 5.4 million set by last year's Canada-USA final in Saskatoon. Amazing numbers to see Canada's grand collapse.
