Canada-Russia got gold-medal ratings

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.

In case you missed it, here's a repeat broadcast of our audio slideshow wrapping up the gold-medal game:
