This Penguins fan might have a few screws loose, but you can’t question his dedication.
A Pittsburgh man was stabbed in the head with a screwdriver during Game 1 of the Penguins first round playoff series against the Blue Jackets. Instead of getting help for his bleeding head, the man waited to get medical help until the game was over, The Guardian reports.
Police responded to the City of Steel Auto Detail shop in Pittsburgh where they found the 43-year-old man with a stab wound. The victim, who was unidentified but is said to be the owner of the shop, told police he was in an argument with a 25-year-old man who attacked him with the screwdriver, according to The Guardian.
The victim refused to be treated and taken to the hospital for his wound when police arrived because the Penguins game was still on. He told police he’d drive himself to the hospital when the game was over, which he did at 10:17 p.m. that night.
Showing the grit of a hockey player, the man was rewarded with a 3-1 win by the Penguins who took a 1-0 lead in their first round best-of-seven series against the Blue Jackets. Pittsburgh scored all three of their goals in the second period and cruised to a key victory.
While the victim went to the hospital happy his team won Wednesday night, there has been no arrest made yet in the case, the police told The Guardian.
