06:04 PM ET 04.17 | For the first time since the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday, the sports world returns to Boston. The Bruins will take on the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night, which was originally scheduled to be played on Monday but was postponed. The Bruins now get back to the grind of hockey, but they have plenty to play for. Along with trying to help a wounded city heal, Boston is on the verge of securing a playoff spot. Tonight will be a special game for the Bruins much like the Saints returning to the Super Dome after Hurricane Katrina, or the Giants stepping on the field after 9/11. The Bruins aren't playing for the playoffs or for personal gain. Tonight, they're playing for the people of Boston. Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs expressed his sympathies to victims of the bombings.

I have no idea if Rene Rancourt planned to stop singing or did it on the spur of the moment, but that was great.

Boston strong indeed.

Love all of this, but man did the interns have to give us Jacobs' greedy mug to look at?

Knowing him, he charged for the ribbons the players wore.

I think it's common knowledge I don't like the guy but he did donate $100,000.00.

That **** hole will probably dock Rancourt for not singing the whole song.

As I'm sure every other sports team owner in town will do. Nice gesture, but one to be expected, don't you think?

The Kraft family has donated $100K, and new tight end Amendola is donating $100 for every catch he makes this year...and $200 for every drop. This sort of stuff will start rolling in big-time over the next few days, I'm sure.

I sincerely hope you're right.

I hope the desire to help those damaged by this terrorism, their families and the city will continue for a long time.

Here's the answer to my question, along with the video of the anthem.
