Canadians just sang the entire American anthem at the Edmonton Oilers game (VIDEO)

You always get a special feeling when you’re at a hockey game and the crowd joins in for the national anthem before puck drop. It’s a feeling that escalates during the playoffs, and can certainly pump up the home crowd before game time.

But something different happened tonight in Edmonton.

Before Game 3 between the Oilers and Anaheim Ducks, country music star and Alberta native Brett Kissel had an apparent mic issue and asked the crowd to “sing it together.” And did they ever.

The entire arena, all 18,000-plus of them, sang the Star Spangled Banner. All of it. Word for word.

Pure class, Edmonton. Pure class.
