Watch the Pittsburgh crowd honor Ottawa by performing 'O Canada!'

New, comments

Following the tragic events in Ottawa on Wednesday afternoon, the Penguins decided to perform the Canadian national anthem before their game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Before the start of the Philadelphia Flyers game in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night, there was a special performance of the Canadian national anthem in support of the people in Ottawa following the tragic events that unfolded in Canada's capital city earlier in the day.

Since the game in Pittsburgh did not involve a Canadian team, there was no requirement for the Penguins to do this, but it was still a great gesture on their part, while the fans were urged to sing along with Penguins anthem performer Jeff Jimerson.

The NHL postponed the Senators game against Toronto following a shooting inside of Parliament and at the National War Memorial.
