NHL Fans Sing National Anthem To Help Performer, She Called It: ‘The Most Memorable Performance’
Before a playoff game between the New York Islanders and the Boston Bruins on Wednesday, hockey fans started singing a part of “The Star-Spangled Banner” covering for the national anthem singer.
According to the NHL, Nicole Raviv, a singer-songwriter, plays the national anthem before Islanders games at Nassau Coliseum on a regular basis.
Her microphone was faulty prior to Saturday’s Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the second round.
As the microphone cut in and out, the 12,000 in attendance stepped in and helped her sing.

The microphone was in working order before to Game 6 on Wednesday night, the Islanders fans still joined in.
As they all sang together, Raviv waved the microphone to the audience.
“I didn’t think @thenicoleraviv could sing the anthem any better than she normally does at #isles games,” sportscaster Shannon Hogan tweeted.
“But that right there was something really special.”
Raviv replied, “I’m not crying you’re crying.”
