Lightning strike zaps Game 7 on OLN

Just as many of you were settling in to watch Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes on the Outdoor Life Network, the screen went black. And, in some places, stayed that way until after the game was completed.
“We had a severe storm in the area and the facility that provides the feed to the Philadelphia market got a direct lightning hit,” Comcast spokesman Jeff Alexander said. “There were a few other channels that were affected, and the vast majority were restored quickly. Unfortunately, OLN was not one of those channels.”
Alexander said “a little more than an hour” of the game was lost in most affected areas, which included Philadelphia, South Jersey and other outlying areas.
As of late last night, plans to rebroadcast the game, won by Carolina, 4-2, hadn’t been made by OLN.

    That was a serious buzz-kill. I was just settling in with a few beers and zap! I missed the whole end of game from middle of 2nd period. The best part of the game most likely.
