Nearly a thousand people packed an arena in Mars, Pennsylvania, to cheer on a female high school hockey player. It was her first home game back after she had to deal with sexist and derogatory chants yelled at her during a game in October. The girl, a starting varsity goalie, was not only supported by her hometown fans – but by the NHL as well. The Mars Area High School hockey team was invited to a Penguins game and even got a shoutout on the scoreboard.
