ST. LOUIS (AP) - Game 7 of the Blackhawks-Blues first-round series drew the largest TV audience for Fox Sports Midwest.

The game Monday night also attracted the largest audience for a first-round playoff game on NBCSN.

The Fox telecast had a 19.6 rating in the St. Louis market, averaging 239,000 households according to Nielsen Media Research, and was the No. 1 program of the day in the market.
