Keith Yandle Skates Photo: Coyotes Player Shares 'Pray For Boston' Message After Marathon Bombing

A native of Milton, Mass., Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle showed his support for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing with a message on his skates on Monday night. Playing in a game in Phoenix against the San Jose Sharks, Yandle wrote "Pray For Boston" on his skates.

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Ben Revere had the same message written and taped to his glove before a game in Cincinnati.

Although the Bruins' home game scheduled for Monday night at TD Garden was postponed in the wake of the explosions near the finish line of the marathon, fans and athletes across the country observed moments of silence on Monday night before other games played as scheduled.
