DETROIT (AP) - Television ratings for Game 1 of the Red Wings-Penguins Stanley Cup finals rematch were down from last year's levels.

The NBC telecast drew a 2.6 rating and a 5 share. That's compared with a four-game NBC average of a 3.2 rating and a 6 share one year ago.

Detroit beat Pittsburgh 3-1 in Saturday night's Game 1 and won the Cup over the Pens in six games in 2008.

The first Cup finals game on NBC last year - a Pittsburgh win in Game 3 - earned a 2.8 national rating.

The rating is the percentage watching a program among homes with
televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned into the broadcast among those households with TVs on at the time.
