    Truly Moving Version Of National Anthem At Last Night's Bruins Game

    I was blown away and very teary-eyed while viewing this on ESPN this morning.

    Bruins fans sing national anthem in emotional pregame scene

    CBSSPORTS

    By Brian Stubits | Hockey writer

    The Boston Bruins returned to action Wednesday night, taking part in the first major sporting event in the city since the tragic bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday.

    The scene in TD Garden before the game was amazing. Simply, it's a moment that will forever be remembered, a rendition of the national anthem that will go down with the version in Chicago during the Persian Gulf War in 1991.

    Rene Rancourt, the legendary anthem singer in Boston, just stepped aside and let the fans take it away. Good call.

    When the anthem was done, the crowd broke out into a familiar chant, of sorts. Instead of "Let's Go Bruins!" the chant was changed to "Let's Go Boston!"

    The moment speaks for itself. Now, hopefully, the healing can begin and hockey will help.

    It was pretty amazing watching the game. I was rooting for the Bruins against my Sabres, even though I usually hate the Killer Bees, for the sake of the crowd (and a better draft pick for the Sabres)...

    The crowd was also chanting "U-S-A!" throughout the game. And yeah, I got choked up...
