NEW YORK — Members of New York City’s police and fire departments observed a moment of silence for fallen firefighter Michael Davidson before battling it out at their annual hockey game.
The Daily News reports that fans at the sold-out Madison Square Garden paused to remember Davidson before Saturday’s 45th annual FDNY-NYPD hockey game.
Davidson died early Friday after battling a blaze at movie set in Harlem.
Honored along with Davidson were firefighters Christopher Zanetis and Christopher Raguso. The two were killed in a March 15 helicopter crash in Iraq while serving with the New York Air National Guard.
The game was tied 4-4 after regulation. The firefighters won on their sixth shot in a shootout.
FDNY hockey team leads the series with a record of 25-18-2.
