In support of the military, and in response to the shooting death of Canadian soldier Nathan Cirillo, the Ottawa Senators are asking their fans attending Saturday night’s game to wear red, and to take part in a moment of silence before the puck drops.
The Senators’ president Cyril Leeder hopes that the sport of hockey can help the healing process by bringing everyone together. In cooperation with the Senators, the Leafs and Canadiens will also hold a special anthem presentation before their game.
