Was watching the Detroit / Chicago game on the weekend via the U.S. NBC feed ( Channel 202 NBC Seattle and/or 207 NBC Minneapolis on SHAW ) and while the game was in overtime, at exactly 2:00pm, both channels cut over to golf. Fortunately nobody score and the network cut back to hockey in time to show the shootout, but I can't imagine the uproar if CBC or TSN cut away from an overtime to show something else.
Yup, mentioned this in the Around The League thread. Odd that some people didn't experience this, but my Kare-11 (NBC Minneapolis) Shaw feed was interrupted. Pretty brutal.

You'd think NBC would've learned their lesson the first time.
