During sporting events, teams’ Twitter accounts will send out live updates and highlights throughout the games. However, that won’t be the case for the San Jose Sharks Saturday night. The team is hosting Pride Night at SAP Center against the New York Islanders, but those in attendance will not be the only ones seeing their celebration. The Philadelphia Flyers’ Ivan Provorov cited his Russian Orthodox religion for his reason not to participate in warmups on his team’s Pride Night. The New York Rangers promoted its Pride Night in January, saying players would wrap pride-themed tape on sticks, but that plan was also nixed with no explanation.
