BOSTON (CBS) — The first major sporting event in Boston after the twin blasts was two days after the Marathon.

On Wednesday, April 17, the Bruins hosted the Buffalo Sabres at the Garden and before the puck dropped, there was a star spangled banner to remember.

Anthem singer Rene Rancourt let the crowd take over and sing. Rancourt talked with WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Drew Moholland that night about the hours leading up to the anthem:

She spoke with Karen Julien, wife of coach Claude, on what it was like to be in the crowd:
