Monday afternoon, news of tragedy broke. In Toronto, a van struck pedestrians, killing 10 and injuring many more. This hit exceptionally close to home in the hockey world, as the Maple Leafs played Monday night at the Air Canada Centre in Game Six of their series against the Boston Bruins.
The Leafs paid tribute to the victims of the attack, holding a moment of silence before the national anthems. But what happened during “O, Canada” was an emotional show of strength and togetherness.
