During last night's Stanley Cup overtime game, the local NBC affiliate in Austin, TX accidentally interrupted play to run a promo for its morning news show. The station cut back to the game 20 seconds later when the promo finished, but viewers only saw a crowd of Chicago Blackhawks celebrating a series-tying goal. The station missed game-winner.

Unfortunately for the station, it got even worse. An apology was issued, which can be seen below, but only after a story aired about growing hockey popularity in Texas. Hockey hipster-fans throughout Austin can now enjoy their Heidi moment.
