The Boston Bruins suited up for their first home hockey game since the attack on the city’s marathon.
Thousands of fans came together to sing an emotional rendition of the National Anthem.
The Bruins hosted the Buffalo Sabres. The Boston Fire Department Honor Guard led the crowd in “The Star Spangled Banner,” which at times featured only the voices of the crowd.
The pre-show at TD Garden featured a “Boston Strong” video honoring first responders, which included the song “Home” by American Idol alum Phillip Phillips.
