It didn't.  ABC's coverage of the Stanley Cup final got a 3.0 and a 6 share in the Nielsen overnights.  But if the ratings improve as the games get more decisive, ABC will easily outrate Fox for the series average.

Fictitious hockey did better for ABC this weekend than the real thing.  Their airing of "The Mighty Ducks" movie on Sunday picked up a 4.2 in the Nielsen overnights.
