Orlando Sentinel - - SPORTS FRIDAY -

The Pen­guins have do­nated nearly $350,000 to the Jewish Fed­er­a­tion of Greater Pitts­burgh to ben­e­fit the vic­tims of last month’s sy­n­a­gogue mas­sacre.

The Pen­guins on Thurs­day pre­sented $348,705 to the fed­er­a­tion and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Tree of Life Sy­n­a­gogue. The team launched the “Stronger Than Hate” fundrais­ing cam­paign af­ter the Oct. 27 shoot­ing that killed 11 con­gre­gants. They auc­tioned off signed jer­seys, sold “Stronger Than Hate” patches, had a blood drive and a text-to-do­nate pro­gram.

The team said it also will be do­nat­ing $200,000 to the city’s newly-cre­ated trust fund to honor the po­lice, fire, medics and pub­lic safety per­son­nel who re­sponded to the shoot­ing, es­pe­cially the six of­fi­cers who were wounded.

Bo Hor­vat had two goals and two as­sists and the Canucks ex­tended their win­ning streak to five games with an 8-5 vic­tory over the Bru­ins in Bos­ton. Loui Eriks­son added two goals and an as­sist and spurred a five-goal out­bust in the sec­ond pe­riod for the Canucks . ... Bob Naegele Jr., the found­ing owner of the Wild, died Wed­nes­day night of com­pli­ca­tions from cancer. He was 78.
