It seems there’s nowhere in North America that’s safe for an NHL telecast. On the heels of NBC’s “horsie game” over the weekend, hockey fans in Manitoba got gypped out of the first two periods of Tuesday’s Western Conference-clinching game between Anaheim and Detroit, in favor of live provincial-election results action.

The biggest tragedy, of course, is the civic blow north of the border:

Roddy Blochlinger said he was very upset about not being able to watch the game at home.

“I’m probably not going to go vote because of this now, just as my own little stand towards this,” he said. “I’m not even a huge hockey fan, but the playoffs are the playoffs.”

Now even Canada is keeping National Hockey League broadcasts off the air. Maybe there is something to all those conspiracy crackpot theories.
