PHILADELPHIA, PA - APRIL 14: Lauren Hart sings the national anthem with help from a tape of Kate Smith during round one of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. The May 2 rendition was a truly emotional one for our American friends(Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)
I'll say this, the Lauren Hart/Kate Smith combo of "God Bless America" has always impressed me, but tonight's rendition, now that OSB has been left for chum, was incredible.
Ms. Hart had a very busy day of pre-game interviews and the emotional day certainly showed. Had the Montreal Canadiens met the Philadelphia Flyers in the playoffs, we had an interview set to go. We'll catch up with her next season.
