By Steve Keating TORONTO (Reuters) - A National Basketball Association (NBA) pre-season game rarely holds any importance and a meeting between the Toronto Raptors and Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday held even less relevance as Canadians digested a day of terror. The exhibition contest in Toronto went on but a National Hockey League game in Ottawa between the home-town Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs did not after a morning of gunfire in the Canadian capital left two men dead and a city on edge. ...

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators were due to play on Wednesday night. They did not because downtown Ottawa came under siege earlier in the day, when a gunman shot and killed a solider at the National War Memorial before the gunman was shot and killed inside the Canadian Parliament building. The Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins did play on Wednesday night, and before the game fans at CONSOL Energy Center let Canadians know they’re in the thoughts and prayers of hockey fans.  They sang to a performance of “O Canada,” which isn’t played before games featuring two American teams despite the majority of players being Canadians. Here's another vantage point from Sean Gentille of the Sporting News from the press box: Truth be told, we were expecting one of those “anthem singer drops out to allow fans to carry the tune” moments, which he did during “The Star Spangled Banner” that followed. But it’s the thought that counts, and this was a truly thoughtful moment from these two rivals.

Wednesday morning's tragic events in Ottawa -- where a gunman opened fire at the National War Memorial, shooting a solider standing guard before driving a car to the doors of Parliament Hill, have sparked responses from the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs.  Both teams were supposed to play Wednesday evening at the Canadian Tire Centre in nearby Kanata,  but the NHL has postponed the game.  Both teams supported the NHL's decision.  Below is a statement from the Maple Leafs: “The Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club extends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of all affected by the tragic events in downtown Ottawa today. The Club supports the National Hockey League’s decision to postpone tonight’s scheduled meeting with the Ottawa Senators. We have been witness today to some terrible events but are thankful to those brave men and women for their tireless service in protecting everyone’s safety.” And below is the statment from Senators owner Eugene Melnyk: “We are shocked and deeply saddened by today’s tragic events on Parliament Hill and in downtown Ottawa. Our collective thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims as well as with all Members of Parliament and staff who have had to manage through today’s difficult circumstances,” said Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. “Hockey is certainly secondary to these type of tragic events and we know our fans stand alongside us with the league’s decision to postpone tonight’s game.” Obviously this is all gut-wrenching stuff. As our Nick Cotsonika noted on Twitter, there was no way the NHL could rightfully play the game Wednesday Per Kim Mackrael of the Globe and Mail , downtown Ottawa -- which is about 30 minutes from where the Senators play -- is still not secure, and people are still being told to stay inside and keep their doors locked.  Senators and Maple Leafs players have already taken to Twitter to react to the situation.  Makes me sad what's going on in Ottawa right now. Thoughts and prays to everyone involved. Everybody stay safe — Erik Karlsson (@ErikKarlsson65) October 22, 2014 Surreal scene outside of our hotel right now. Lot of very brave police officers we should all be very proud of. — Joffrey Lupul (@JLupul) October 22, 2014
