Pittsburgh Penguins Fan Joins Toronto Maple Leafs’ Pity Party

The Tampa Bay Lightning’s 2-1 win in Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs sent hometown fans at Scotiabank Arena into a well of despair.

As the camera panned across the venue, the crushing weight of the Leafs’ elimination was visibly setting in, and one fan in attendance made it known that he wasn’t part of the pity party.

Once he came into the broadcast camera’s view, the random fan promptly flipped his cap, revealing that he’s a Pittsburgh Penguins fan, wanting no part of the Leafs’ deflating loss.


Social media joined the fan’s relishing of the Leafs’ demise, but Pittsburgh suffered a similar fate less than a day later.

Though the fan gleefully boasted his Penguins fandom on Saturday, he may be having a tough time doing so on Sunday after Pittsburgh lost Game 7 against the New York Rangers, 4-3.
