Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs gather at National War Memorial
Teams scheduled to play on night of Ottawa shooting honour Cpl. Nathan Cirillo on Sunday
The Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs gathered at the National War Memorial on Sunday to pay their respects to fallen soldiers, including Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, who was shot and killed while guarding the memorial last month.
The teams came together late on Sunday morning ahead of their game at 6 p.m. ET at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa.
The game was originally scheduled for Oct. 22 in Ottawa, but that was postponed after the shooting incident in downtown Ottawa.
Nathan Cirillo was shot and killed before the shooter, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, entered Parliament Hill. He was then shot and killed inside the Centre Block.
On Saturday night, the Senators lost 2-1 in a shoot-out to the Winnipeg Jets. Toronto defeated the New York Rangers 5-4.
