Watch the Bruins Honor Boston Marathon Victims, First Responders
After the game, the Bruins and Sabres met at center ice for a stick salute to the Boston crowd. Typically, only the home team takes part in this tradition, but, during warmups, Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and Buffalo's Thomas Vanek conferred setting up the classy post-game display.
Buffalo beat Boston 3-2 in a shootout.
Courtesy of NBC Sports Network, watch the ceremony as the crowd at the Garden takes over for Rene Rancourt and sings the National Anthem together.
