After spectators in Montreal booed the U.S. national anthem before Game 3, a few jeers were heard at the outset of the Canadian national anthem Friday, but they were quickly drowned out by applause.
The crowd roared and gave a standing ovation when former Capitals enforcer Donald Brashear was shown on the above-ice video screen, sitting in the stands. Brashear acknowledged the cheers by blowing a kiss.
