Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Blackhawks and Bruins last night was, in a word, awesome. Three overtimes, skilled play, and drama by the bucketload made for one of the most entertaining hockey games in recent memory.
However, there were some people who weren't exactly thrilled with the game. There were plenty of viewers who were more than upset that the long NHL game was delaying their viewing of Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon. The overreactions and complete ignorance to the situation was a site to behold. As always, these are Real Tweets from Real People...
Kevin Hart's on the Jay Leno show tonight...and I'm missing it because of this stupid hockey game— Adam Larivee (@_Larivee_) June 13, 2013
Is there anything longer than NHL OT? Waiting patiently to see @jeremyscahill on Leno.— Sean Redding (@redi275) June 13, 2013
.@jeremyscahill is supposed to be on Jay Leno right now but this hockey game is in double overtime *government conspiracy*— Farah Sattar (@Farah_Sattar) June 13, 2013
@jayleno WHERE IS LENO?! Why hockey whyyyyyyyy?!! It's not even on the 2nd channel!— Jessica Symonds (@Jesstar666) June 13, 2013
The Jimmy Fallon fans were juuuuuuuuuust a bit angrier than Leno fans...

And then, there were the people that exemplified the phrase "first world problems" when their affiliates went to local news instead of immediately airing Fallon...
UGH THE NEWS THAT IS COVERING THE STORM IS ON INSTEAD OF JIMMY FALLON:(((((— emily (@acciooponds) June 13, 2013
@justjennette they're talking about a death investigation on the news… COME ON, JUST SWITCH OVER TO FALLON ALREADY!!!!— jalon (@iLove_McCurdy) June 13, 2013
And finally, some people just don't understand how television rights really work...
Dude I'm so mad right now. Like they can't switch this hockey mess over to espn so we can watch @latenightjimmy?! Not cool.— Ashley Brown (@ArtDealer_Chic) June 13, 2013
"The overreactions and complete ignorance to the situation was a site to behold" So they don't watch or care about hockey, so they are overreacting and completely ignorant? If something you didn't care about was interfering with something you wanted to watch, you'd post an article here complaining about it. So you whine about them doing the exact same thing
You know I'm not even a big hockey fan but I watched it and I thought it was an excellent game. But here's the bigger question. Do any of these people work? What would they be doing watching Leno at 11:35 and/or Fallon an hour later? They must not sleep much if they have jobs.
I hope for everyone's sake that all the games on NBC go into 5 overtimes, so all these spoiled youngsters can watch something that's truly entertaining as opposed to Leno or Fallon.
AA & colleagues, thank you. Missed game 1, darn. I'll be able to watch via NBC, game 4 and others, if needed. I have share our one TV with our children. Yes, we are a throwback with one TV.
How about to those people, shut up and enjoy the game. Yes I watch both Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon, but I love hockey so get use to seeing playoff overtime hockey.
@everyone Game 1 was on NBC. Games 2 & 3 (Saturday & Monday) are on NBCSN. Games 4-7 (Weds, Sat, Mon, Weds) are on NBC. All start at 8 PM. Hope this helps a bit.
I wish I could watch it, don't have digital cable on my tv. I wish it was on regular cable at least.
@Daniel Aaron Evans With all due respect, this ain't the NBA...it's The Stanley Cup FINAL...as in FINAL series.
