Everyone was glued to the television sets to the riveting Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The exciting game went into overtime where Brent Seabrook won the game for the Chicago Blawkhawks. The dramatic goal was the pinnacle of what was one of the greatest Stanley Cup games of all-time. However if you lived in Austin, Texas you missed the exciting finale. NBC Austin affiliate KXAN cut away at the absolute worst possible moment. Seconds before Seabrook scored the game-winning goal the network aired a promo for its morning show as well as some enthralling commercials. Once they resolved the technical difficulties the game was already over and the Blackhawks were celebrating. The station has since issued an apology for their epic goof.
