(NECN: John Moroney, Worcester, Mass.) - Ten years after the fire at the Worcester cold storage warehouse that killed six firefighters, the Worcester Sharks AHL hockey team helped the Worcester Fire Department honor those men at the DCU Center. It was a tribute from Worcester's hockey team to the city's fallen heroes -- The Worcester Six, the half-dozen firefighters who lost their lives a decade ago trying to save others. "The compassion of the public was wonderful," James Lyons said. "It was a tragedy that brought a community together." The families of the firefighters helped the Worcester Sharks raise a banner to the rafters of the DCU Center, marking the tenth anniversary of the cold storage warehouse fire. For Sunday's game, players wore special jerseys. And goaltender Alex Stalock wore a Worcester Six Tribute mask. He has been undefeated since donning it last week. "I didn't know the whole story behind it, six guys helping us out," Stalock said. The goalie mask honors the men who were killed December 3, 1999 in one of the Bay State's deadliest fire, and it's now up for auction -- with the proceeds going to charity. Mike Myers designed the mask. "We got the W-6 logo on top," Myers said. "We have a kneeling firefighter." The Worcester Six tribute mask will be up for auction until Wednesday.
