Montreal Canadiens play French national anthem before game at Bell Centre

January 10, 2015 - 4:37 PM

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens honoured the victims of this week's terrorist shootings in Paris by playing the French national anthem prior to their game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.

Two shooters killed 12 people Wednesday at the Paris headquarters of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

The attack was followed by Friday's deadly terrorist assault on a supermarket.

In all, 20 people died during the three days of violence, including three gunmen.

The French flag was shown waving on the scoreboard at Bell Centre as the Canadiens played La Marseillaise before the American and Canadian national anthems.
