NEW YORK — The Stanley Cup Final’ television ratings were down 29 percent from last year.

The Los Angeles Kings’ victory over the New Jersey Devils in six games averaged a 2.2 rating and 4 share on NBC. The 2011 series between the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks, boosted by a Game 7, averaged a 3.1/6.

Viewership was also hurt by going head-to-head against the NBA playoffs, unlike last year. Monday’s decisive Game 6 earned a series-high 3.1 rating, down 3 percent from last season’s Game 6.
