BOSTON (CBS) – For the second time in a week, the Boston Bruins paid tribute on Saturday to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings and their families.
The afternoon began with Tuukka Rask, Zdeno Chara, Jaromir Jagr and all Bruins sporting different hats of various law enforcement agencies throughout warm-ups.
The house music, which is normally “Clique” by Kanye West, Big Sean and Jay-Z, was replaced with the cheers of the home crowd before “The State Of Massachusetts” by The Dropkick Murphys played, followed by “I Want My City Back” by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
Once again, Rene Rancourt allowed the crowd to take over the singing of The Star Spangled Banner.
Chants of “U-S-A” and “Let’s Go Boston” broke out before the puck was dropped.
Both teams’ jerseys feature special “Boston Strong” patches featuring a blue and yellow ribbon. The jerseys will be auctioned off for the relief fund.
