The city of Boston was understandably taken aback by the bombings at its famed marathon Monday, a tragedy that has taken three lives and injured hundreds more.
But that doesn't mean the city is down on itself.
Prior to Wednesday night's Bruins game, where the hockey team was set to take on the Buffalo Sabres, national anthem singer Rene Rancourt began to sing. Then the rest of the arena joined in.
It's pretty special.
