Boston Bruins return to action after marathon tragedy

In the wake of the tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon earlier this week, many sports team paid tribute to the city and the scores of victims from the attack, but no moments were quite as touching as the hockey game between the Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night. Before puck drop, the more than 17,500 fans in attendance joined together to sing the national anthem. It was just the beginning in what would prove to be an emotional night.

The Bruins eventually fell just short of the victory - losing to the Sabres in a shootout - but the final score was only a footnote to the rest of the evening. When Daniel Paille quickly scored to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead, the crowd's standing ovation stuck with fan favorite Brad Marchand.

"It was definitely giving every guy goose bumps on the ice, and I'm sure throughout the building," Marchand told ESPNBoston.com.

The Bruins took to the ice a day after teams around professional sports paid tribute to Boston. Perhaps most poignantly, the New York Yankees played "Sweet Caroline" - which is played during every Boston Red Sox home game - during the third inning of their Tuesday tilt against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
