When the 2017 NHL Playoffs are in the books, a moment prior to Sunday’s Game 3 between the Edmonton Oilers and Anaheim Ducks will be remembered as one of the best highlights from the run to the Stanley Cup.
Canadian country music star Brett Kissel was set to sing the national anthems prior to the game, when technical difficulties occurred.
Rather than panicking, Kissel motioned to the crowd and directed the 18,000 NHL fans in attendance through an incredible a capella version of “The Star Spangled Banner.” It was pure class. With no lyrics or direction, the fans belted out the national anthem from their memory.
How many of you reading could help out if the mic went out during “O Canada,” eh?
Check out the awesome moment below:

What a moment, and we all have to appreciate the pure class from the Edmonton fans.
Unfortunately for the Oilers fans, Anaheim earned a 6-3 win. Don’t worry though, Edmonton, the Oilers still lead the series, 2-1.
