A representative for Jeong confirmed to EW that he and an emergency medical technician helped the woman until paramedics arrived, as first reported by TMZ. A woman had a medical emergency during the show he comes to rescue her.

Jeong first believed he was being heckled by someone from the audience, but then realized what was happening and quickly provided aid.

Jeong received a round of applause for his quick actions.

Filip Forsberg then clanged a shot off the iron just 40 seconds into the second period that would have extended the lead as well. Ryan Johansen topped the Nashville scoring burst with a first period goal and a third period tally that gave the team the lead.

"It's a wonderful story".

"He couldn't see what was going on with the lights".

An audience member told USA Today that initially, the comedian thought he was being heckled. It was such ideal timing: "Ken just jumped from the stage to help", audience member Heather Holmberg told USA Today. "We need you!' He realised there was an issue, and he came over".

It was a moment where time stands still. An EMT in the audience also provided quick assistance. Someone was having a crisis.

Once the woman was taken care of, Jeong hopped back on stage and within minutes was able to finish his set and get the tensed-up audience laughing once more.
