The New York Rangers weren't the only ones who took a public loss during the Pittsburgh Penguins' 7-4 victory in Game 3 of their first-round Stanley Cup Playoffs series on Saturday (May 7) night.

After the Penguins scored their go-ahead goal in the third period, the TNT live broadcast of the game cut to a man in attendance at PPG Paints Arena getting denied a celebratory kiss form the woman next to him.

The man, wearing a Mario Lemieux jersey, is shown yelling in excitement before moving in on the woman, who puts up a hand to block his attempt.

Numerous Twitter users watching the live broadcast shared the gif of the man's failed attempt including former NFL punter and Plum native Pat McAfee and WPXI sports anchor Jenna Harner.

There is, however, a happy ending to this story.

Matt McHugh identified himself as the man in the video in a response to a post shared by Barstool Sports' verified Twitter account, sharing a photo of himself and the woman sharing a kiss in the empty arena.

"As the man in this video I have to say that I still very much love her with every fiber of my being #badtiming," McHugh wrote.

Pittsburgh took a 2-1 lead in the series during Saturday's win and will host the Rangers in Game 4 at PPG Paints Arena on Monday (May 9) night.
