Game 7 brings out all the hockey fans.

NBCSN's broadcast of a Stanley Cup Playoffs winner-goes-on showdown between the St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks drew 1.353 million viewers Monday, setting a network record for the most-watched first-round game in history.

Viewership peaked at two million in the third period, according to NBC's press release.

The game was a hit locally in Chicago, as you'd expect, but it set a CSN Chicago record as the most-watched telecast ever, drawing a 19.1 household rating. The previous record of 13.7 was obliterated.

Canadians may not be watching, but Americans are.
