Last night, as the Penguins traditionally now have done once per season, was “Hockey Fights Cancer” night at PPG Paints Arena, where they took on the Arizona Coyotes and came away with a win.

Before the game, Darran Dunlap, daughter of local 93.7 The Fan radio host Colin Dunlap, joined Jeff Jimerson on the ice for the National Anthem.

It’s been one year since Darran was diagnosed with leukemia and Colin has been very vocal in sharing her strength and bravery in her fight.
