Hockey players are tough, and so are hockey fans.
The incident occurred when Oilers forward Benoit Pouliot checked Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson against the glass with enough force to loosen part of it, instead of it falling out in one piece.
The fan, a young woman, got cut and bled from a head wound, but since it was her first Blackhawks game she settled for basic first aid, opting to stay and enjoy the rest of the game instead of going to the hospital for stitches.
The Blackhawks went on to beat the Oilers 2-1 in a shootout.
