Penguins honor Pittsburgh synagogue shooting victims


About 5 miles from the synagogue, where 11 people were killed and six were injured in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood Saturday, the Penguins held a moment of silence before their first home game in two weeks.


Sue Berman Kress, Bob Silverman and Josh Sayles of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh were welcomed onto the ice for the moment of silence and anthem.


Chief Scott Schubert and Officers Mike Smidga and Anthony Burke of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police performed a ceremonial puck drop to a standing ovation.


A patch with the Penguins logo superimposed on an upside-down triangle, forming a Star of David, with "Stronger Than Hate" underneath, was sewn onto the right shoulder of Pittsburgh's jerseys.


Vitalant, a nonprofit organization specializing in blood donation, collected 254 units, enough to save or directly impact 762 lives, the Penguins said on their Twitter account.


The Penguins canceled their annual Halloween celebration scheduled for Tuesday and instead held a collection to benefit the Victims and families affected by the shooting.
