Nicole Raviv turned it over to Nassau Coliseum faithful, who delivered a stirring rendition.
Nicole Raviv got some help with her job again Wednesday.
New York Islanders fans overpowered the anthem singer and delivered a stirring rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Second Round between New York and the Boston Bruins at Nassau Coliseum.
Raviv regularly performs the national anthem before Islanders games but ran into some technical difficulties during Game 4 on Long Island on Saturday. The 12,000 fans in attendance picked up the slack, singing the song before New York’s 4-1 win.
But with her microphone working fine Wednesday, Raviv started the song then turned it over to the Islanders supporters. The Coliseum faithful delivered the goods too.
We’ll let you decide whether it was as good as the performance from Montreal Canadiens fans at their first game back at Bell Centre.
