Without the NBA playoffs, Tuesday’s cable ratings were prime real estate for the NHL.

ESPN’s broadcast of the conference finals match between the San Jose Sharks and the St. Louis Blues resulted in the elimination of the Sharks and a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was about even with the previous Tuesday’s Conference Final match, in which the Boston Bruins played the Carolina Hurricanes.

In second place, “WWE Smackdown” couldn’t break past the 0.6 it grabbed two weeks ago, but it did manage to return to the top 3. Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” came in third, but found itself there at 0.5 with one-tenth of a point of its viewership lopped off.

Elsewhere, “The Last OG” on TBS picked up from 0.3 to 0.4, edging out “Miz & Mrs.” which continued at 0.4. “Deadliest Catch” on Discovery stagnated at 0.3 along with “The Haves and the Have Nots” of OWN and “Little People, Big World” on TLC.

HGTV’s “House Hunters” returned to 0.3 from the 0.2 that forced it from the chart altogether last week. Fellow HGTV series “Good Bones” slipped to 0.2 from 0.3, landing alongside “Growing Up Chrisley” which remained at 0.2. Joining them there were Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Food Network’s “Chopped,” and “Conan” on TBS.
