(CNSNews.com)- Prior to game 6 of the National Hockey League second round playoff game between the Boston Bruins and the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y. on Wednesday night, Islanders fans assisted national anthem singer Nicole Raviv with the singing of the “Star Spangled Banner.”

Public Address Announcer Alex Anthony asked fans to join Raviv in the singing of the national anthem.

After she began singing the anthem, Raviv turned the microphone to the fans during the “at the twilights last gleaming” part. She returned the microphone to herself to finish the anthem, with the fans singing loudly the entire time. 

The Islanders won the game 6-2 to win the playoff series 4 games to 2. They will now take on the defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Tampa Bay Lightning in the NHL Semifinals.
