NBC Austin affiliate cuts to commercial just before OT game-winner of Game 4

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, then cut back to the game as the Blackhawks were celebrating their 6-5 victory in Boston.

Yikes.

Here’s video of the station’s apology:
