We have preached for it for years now, playoff hockey is one of the best times of the year. It has the most energy of any playoffs. The players go balls to the walls for weeks in hopes of winning the Stanley Cup, and fans try to match that intensity.
One fan was so jacked up for the Pittsburgh Penguins first game of the 2017 NHL Playoffs that he refused medical treatment after being stabbed in the fricken’ head with a screwdriver, declining to go to the hospital until the game was over like a true hockey fan.
A Pittsburgh man who was stabbed in the head with a screwdriver Wednesday refused to be transported to the hospital until after the Penguins’ playoff game concluded.
According to a police report obtained by Bryan Armen Graham of the Guardian, the 43-year-old owner of City of Steel Auto Detail in Pittsburgh was struck by a 25-year-old male with a screwdriver during a verbal altercation. The victim told police he did not want medical assistance at the scene and would drive himself to the hospital after the Penguins’ matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets ended. Via
When the games ended this injured fan drove himself to the hospital with blood still gushing from his head. This all went down roughly 1 hour after the police were called to his auto shop.
Once again, just like the players, hockey fans are some bad ass SOB’s.
