Red Sox, Bruins postpone games during manhunt for bombing suspect

(Continued)

The Bruins resumed play on Wednesday night amid tightened security at home against the Buffalo Sabres. Fans were checked with wands and cars were subject to random searches as they entered the TD Garden underground garage.

Before the game, there was a moment of silence, a slideshow of marathon scenes on the video scoreboard above center ice and a stirring rendition of the national anthem, which was started by long-time Bruins vocalist Rene Rancourt. He sang a few lines then gestured for the fans to join in — which they did.

"We are trying to put on a show for the fans and, hopefully, give them some sort of escape," Buffalo's Drew Stafford said after the game. "With everything that happened, emotions were extremely high tonight. I am sure that there were not a lot of dry eyes in the stands during the anthem."

After the game, players gathered at center ice and raised their sticks in a salute to the fans who had chanted "U.S.A." and "We are Boston."
