[Watch] Support For Canada: Pittsburgh Pens Fans Sing ‘O Canada’ Before Game With Rival Flyers

It’s one of the fiercest rivalries in the National Hockey League: the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers go at it like in the old days.  There is no love lost between the fans and no mercy given in the ice.

None the less, in a league that has been far more honorable over the years than not, it is not surprising at all that on a day where the majority of players, coaches and officials in the NHL are reeling from the first terrorist attacks on the soil of their homeland, two teams based in the United States would do this in support.  Before the puck dropped at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, two US-based teams – and the fans – sang “O Canada.”


That’s classy.  Good for Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, and may the rest of the NHL follow suit as their first games between American teams are played this weekend.
