2013 NHL Stanley Cup Final - Game Six

So this is apparently a thing.

As the nation tuned into Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, the porn site “PornHub” was closely monitoring its traffic. The game hurt their numbers, but boy-oh-boy, did they bounce back after the game ended. Actually, check that; they bounced back in Boston, where fans of the Bruins chose to go home and mourn alone rather than go out and celebrate.

Here’s the graph of their data from over the game hours:

Boston porn

From PornHub’s press release, which I swear I don’t usually receive (I came across it on NESN!):

“Last night marked the end of the NHL Championships, and much like the NBA Finals did, the battle for the Cup managed to take users away from their beloved porn once more. Until, of course the end of the game marking the Bruins’ loss, which saw all of Boston turning to Pornhub to take out some of that pent up aggression.

“That’s right — the statisticians at Pornhub.com carefully analyzed each hour of the game to track traffic changes in Chicago, Boston, and across the US by the hour; comparing each location relative to the rest of the country.”

Bruins Fans Mourn With Porn. Can’t be long before that’s a t-shirt.
