Pittsburgh NHL Fans Honor Canada by Singing “O Canada” National Anthem

NHL fans in Pittsburgh paid tribute to Canada on Wednesday night by singing the Canadian national anthem before facing off against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Canadian flag was projected on the ice during the playing of “O Canada” to honor the U.S.’s northern neighbor grappling with Wednesday’s deadly attack on the parliament building in Ottawa.

“The NHL postponed the scheduled game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators following the attack,” the Associated Press reports. “The Penguins and Flyers feature rosters filled with Canadian players, including reigning league MVP Sidney Crosby.”
