The Blackhawks beat the Bruins 6-5 on an overtime winner from Brent Seabrook in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final to tie the series at 2-2.
It was one of the great Stanley Cup Final games in memory and the dramatic sudden death finish was just the capstone to an instant classic.
If you were watching the game in Austin, Texas on KXAN, there was just one slight problem.
You missed Seabrook's winning goal thanks to a botch of equally epic proportions. The network cut away from the action to run a promo spot for its morning show, followed by a commercial and only returned to see the Blackhawks celebrating. Eep.
And just to add insult to injury...
@awfulannouncing what is even better is that their teaser new story for tonights newscast is about how hockey is catching on in Texas!

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook let a blast go from the point to beat Tuukka Rask for the crucial game-winning goal in Game 4. Jonathan Toews did a fantastic job screening Rask and he never saw the shot. The Blackhawks were in a must-win scenario and the series is now tied 2-2 heading to Game 5 in Chicago.
Wow. Just, wow.

The teams traded goals in the first period (from Michal Handzus and Rich Peverley...
One would assume there were a lot of pissed off hockey fans in Austin, Texas last night considering Austin’s local NBC affiliate decided to air a promo for their morning news program instead of Brent Seabrook’s overtime game-winner during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.
The station cut away from the game right before Seabrook’s slap shot, aired portions of three commercials...
Ok so either everyone on the ice is mic’d up or the NHL has the best luck ever. This is the third time that the series has gone to overtime, and this is the third time that the mic’d up player was involved in the game-winning goal. Andrew Shaw was mic’d up when he scored the game-winner in Game 1, Tyler Seguin was mic’d up when he assited on the game-winner in Game 2...
If you happened to be watching game four of the Stanley Cup Finals in Austin, Texas, there is the distinct possibility that you might have missed Chicago's game-winner by Brent Seabrook to tie the series at 2.
That's because NBC affiliate KXAN accidentally ran a station promo and commercials during the game-winning score:
As you might figure, KXAN issues an on-air...
It’s been a playoff hockey tradition for the past three years and it has become more popular now than ever. The rules are simple, a Twitter user needs only to submit their two picks (one from each team) to score the overtime winner using the hashtag #bucciovertimechallenge and ESPN’s John Buccigross will retweet some and give out a few t-shirts. It started off as only a...

Fans in Austin, Texas, watching Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals on their local NBC affiliate buckled up for 70 awesome minutes of high-scoring hockey between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks.

Bruins fans who wished they could have looked away during the game-winning goal in Game 4 would have had their wish in Austin, Texas.
NBC affiliate KXAN accidentally aired a promo for its morning news in the middle of overtime, taking viewers away from the NHL action at the most crucial juncture. Instead of seeing the series-tying goal by Brent Seabrook, Texans were treated to KXAN...
Patrick Sharp threw a fist pump so hard he landed on the ice.
"That was as happy as I've been to score a goal in all my career," the Blackhawks left wing said of his third-period score Wednesday night -- though the bigger celebration had to wait a little longer. . . until Brent Seabrook scored 9:51 into overtime to give Chicago a 6-5 win over the Boston Bruins to even...
