The famed hockey trio, who were featured in the 1977 movie starring Paul Newman, offered a tribute to the Saskatchewan players on Twitter.

They said they wished “putting on the foil” or “buying a soda after the game” could help.

But instead they will “reflect and pray God gives peace and comfort during this time.”

Last Friday, 15 people were killed at 14 injured when a semi-trailer collided with a bus carrying the youth hockey team.
