NEW YORK (AP) -- Game 3 has drawn the third-largest audience for the Stanley Cup Final on NBCSN.

The Tampa Bay Lightning's 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night averaged nearly 3.9 million viewers.

NBC said Tuesday that was up 35 percent from the nearly 2.9 million for last year's Game 3 between the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers.

The only two games with bigger audiences came in the 2013 series between the Blackhawks and Boston Bruins.
