Penguins fan stabbed in head refuses medical attention until after game

A Pittsburgh man was so determined to see the Penguins' playoff opener against the Columbus Blue Jackets that he put off receiving medical treatment for a stab wound until after the game was over.

Police were called to an auto detail shop Wednesday around 9 p.m. local time, where they found the 43-year-old victim, whom they believe to be the shop's owner, bleeding from his head, according to Bryan Armen Graham of the Guardian. He had been stabbed with a screwdriver during an altercation with a 25-year-old man.

Paramedics attempted to treat the victim's laceration, but he refused, saying he would drive himself to the hospital after the game, which the Penguins won 3-1.
