Texas TV Station Runs Promo During OT, Misses Game-Winning Goal

(CBS) As we learned last week, every second counts when it comes to overtime hockey.

Somebody should have taught that lesson to NBC affialiate KXAN in Austin, Texas.

With 10:12 remaining in overtime of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, KXAN ran an ill-placed promo for their morning news program, followed by a KIA commercial.

Little did they know the Blackhawks would score three seconds after the promo began, causing all of the die-hard hockey fans in Austin to miss Brent Seabrook’s game-winning goal.

What a shame.
