Fans Sing the National Anthem at First Bruins Game Since Boston Marathon Bombing (VIDEO)

There is something so powerful about 17,565 Bostonians singing together.

This video gives me goosebumps. After the Boston Marathon bombing, the Bruins postponed their game that night and acted swiftly in response to the tragedy according to The New England Sports Network:

On Wednesday, the B’s announced various initiatives to support everyone affected by the Boston Marathon. Most notably, the Bruins will be part of a $250,000 donation to The One Fund Boston supporting Boston Marathon victims and their families.


In addition to the donation to The One Fund, the Bruins will also be holding a series of events to help show their support for the families and people affected by the recent events. These events include a player and team staff ticket donation for first responders to tonight’s game, Bruins and Sabres in-game support and a Brad Marchand suite raffle for the team’s first playoff game.

From the Bruins Facebook page:

Watch as all 17,565-strong at the TD Garden belt out the national anthem prior to tonight’s game.

In the face of disaster and tragedy we rise together to heal and show the unstoppable power of the human heart.

H/T to Lindsay Rhodes of the NFL Network for tweeting this very powerful video.
