Absolute tragedy

If you haven't heard the news, it is absolutely devastating. Yesterday in Russia a Yak-42 was just taking off from the town of Yaroslavl bound for Belarus. The aircraft was carring members of the Yaroslavl Lokomotiv hockey team of the KHL heading for the opening games of the season. The plane unfortunately crashed after take off. In the crash 43 people lost their lives and only two persons escaped with their lives. Among the players and coaches that were lost were 10 former players that saw time in the NHL. Games have been postponed across the league this weekend. My heart breaks for each and every one of the 43 people's families.
