    KXAN Cuts to Commercial Seconds Before Game Winning Goal in Stanley Cup Finals
    By Kevin Eck on June 20, 2013 10:02 AM

    It’s not quite on the level of the NFL’s “Heidi Game,” but viewers of Austin, TX, NBC affiliate KXAN missed the winning overtime goal deciding game four of the Stanley Cup Finals because the station cut to commercial seconds before it happened.

    The game was tied up at five and in overtime. With the Chicago Blackhawks on the attack against the Boston Bruins and with the puck almost on the stick of the man who scored the decider, the station cut away to a morning news promo and a car commercial. When the station cut back, the Blackhawks were coming off the bench to celebrate.
