Bruins and Penguins pay tribute to Boston

By Allan Muir

UPDATE: The Bruins paid tribute to those who lost their lives in Monday's terror attacks and their aftermath with a poignant pre-game video presentation. Rene Rancourt and the fans at TD Garden then offered up a joyous, emotionally charged encore to Wednesday's stirring national anthem performance.

No one in Boston needs to be reminded of the importance of the city's first responders today, but the Bruins paid their own small tribute by wearing baseball caps honoring the Boston Police, Watertown Police and Massachusetts State Police during the pre-game skate ahead of today's rescheduled game against Pittsburgh.

The gesture was reminiscent of one offered by baseball's New York Mets in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, when the team wore the caps of the city's police and fire departments onto the field.

Both teams also are wearing special patches on their jerseys for the game. The Bruins are wearing a Boston Strong ribbon:

Pittsburgh is wearing a 617 patch (denoting Boston's area code):

The jerseys will be auctioned off after the game, with all proceeds going to support the victims of Monday's terror attack at the Boston Marathon.
