Video: TD Garden Sings National Anthem

Rene Rancourt and everyone in attendance last night sang a stirring rendition before the Bruins game.

Scenes like this always reduce me to mush. In the first sporting event played in Boston since the Boston Marathon, famed singer Rene Rancourt took the ice with representatives of Boston's first responders that acted so heroically on Monday. Rancourt started in, but only made it a few lines before letting the crowd take it away. Rancourt conducted as every single person in the TD Garden belted out the words.

Boston and its people truly are incredible. Watching this gives me the chills even before it gets to the "U-S-A" chant at the end. The resolve of Bostonians and the way they have been able to band together like this in such a short time is amazing. They are right back on their feet, and that's the strongest message that can be sent to the perpetrators of this act.

Even though the Bruins eventually lost in a shootout, the outcome of the game was never truly important. The fact that just a few days removed this city was able to band together and play the game speaks volumes.
