Bruins fans offer one of the best renditions of the national anthem you'll ever hear
The Bruins and Sabres delivered quite a passionate performance for the fans, but it was the fans themselves who delivered the most moving moment of the evening, and possibly of the entire NHL season.
The national anthem was started by Rene Rancourt, the Bruins national anthem singer. A few words into it, he lowered his microphone and allowed the crowd to take over. And that's exactly what they did, in incredible fashion.

After the game, which was won by Buffalo in a shootout, players from both teams came out and raised their sticks as a salute to the crowd in a classy move by both teams after a hard-fought game.
As difficult as it is to see tragic events like Monday's bombing, there are also moments like this that remind us that we're all in it together, and we as Americans are bigger than any single tragic moment. We will carry on.
