Bruins Honor City of Boston, Fall Short to Sabres on Emotional Evening at TD Garden (Video)

Sports returned to Boston on Wednesday, two days after the Boston Marathon bombings that devastated the city.

Civic pride was on full display throughout the Bruins’ matchup with the Sabres at TD Garden, which was preceded by a video tribute to the victims and a rousing rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” with the capacity crowd joining anthem singer Rene Rancourt for the second half of the tune.

The Bruins could not pull out a win over their division rivals, dropping a 3-2 decision in a shootout, but the game provided an uplifting experience for a community that has been through so much pain this week.

To see reactions from both the Bruins players and the fans in attendance, check out the video above.
