Penguins will support Ottawa by playing Canadian anthem before hosting Flyers

UPDATE: You can now watch the pre-game rendition of "O Canada!" sung by Jeff Jimerson.


They don't need to play the "O Canada!" before tonight's Penguins vs. Flyers game in Pittsburgh, but in light of Wednesday's tragic events in Ottawa, it's a wonderful move by the home team to perform both anthems prior to the contest.

The game will be broadcast nationally in Canada on Sportsnet 360. Let's hope the anthems are televised so Canadians can see the support.
