The Ottawa Senators and New Jersey Devils have participated in an emotional pregame ceremony Saturday night to honor slain soldiers Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.
As fans waved mini-Canadian flags and glow sticks, players from the Senators and Devils joined together around center ice while military personnel from Cirillo's division and local first responders stood at attention in the center of the circle.
It was the first hockey game in Ottawa since Wednesday's attack on Parliament Hill that included the shooting death of Cirillo at the National War Memorial. Vincent was killed in a hit-and-run attack Monday near Montreal.
