Before the game began, the Boston Fire Department Honor Guard walked out onto the ice to represent the city's first responders to scene of the bombings. Following them out onto the ice was singer Rene Rancourt who started singing the National Anthem.

Shortly into his rendition, Rancourt simply put the microphone down and directed the crowd, who had their singing grow in volume. The fans sang completely in unison as blue and yellow ribbons, American flags, and posters speaking support flew in the air.

It was a moment of solidarity, unity, and goosebumps that was definitely needed at a time like this.

Boston radio personality took to Twitter to express his feelings on it:

"Until tonight Whitney Houston's redendtion (sic) of the national anthem was considered a gold standard. We have a new winner,"
