Since the October 27 deadly mass shooting that occurred at a synagogue in Pittsburgh support has been growing each day.

That has even come from professional athletes and sports franchises that have helped in many ways to honour the victims of the tragic attacks. The latest to step up are the Washington Capitals.

Tonight, the Capitals host their bitter archrivals In the Pittsburgh Penguins, but for one night there will be a little less bitterness between the teams. That is because Washington will be donating to help out.

Through the team’s Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation, half of the 50/50 proceeds will be donated to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to help benefit the victims and families of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.

The Penguins and Capitals tend to have nothing but hate for each other, however, on Wednesday they will be switching things up.

This past Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers took on the Baltimore Ravens, their bitter rivals, on the road. Prior to the game the Ravens tweeted out their support for Pittsburgh as the city heals and held a moment of silence to honour the 11 victims.

While there is “hate” on the playing surface, off of it there is respect because they are all #StrongerThanHate.
