Nicole Raviv regularly sings “Lo stendardo a stelle” before Isles games at the Coliseum but on Wednesday night she was overpowered by the crowd, even turning over the microphone to the fans.
“My heart is full. The coliseum will forever have the best backup singers in the #NHL,” Raviv wrote on Twitter.
Video of the magical moment, as many called it, was shared all over social media.
Head coach Barry Trotz commented on the fans’ energy in Wednesday night’s game, where the Islanders would go on to dominate the Bruins 6-2 to advance to the semifinals.
“What a great atmosphere…it was deafening. I couldn’t hear anything out there, I had some white noise for a while out there”
Islanders fans previously pitched in before Game 4 after Raviv experienced some technical difficulties with her mic while singing the anthem.
Con 12,000 fans in attendance, near full capacity for the Barn, Wednesday’s crowd did not disappoint.
