Wednesday night at Verizon Center, the Washington Capitals hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins for their second-round series’ decisive game. In what is inarguably the biggest night of the Alex Ovechkin era, Sergeant Major Bob McDonald and Master Sergeant Caleb Green set the table, delivering a stirring rendition of the national anthem ahead of Game Seven.
Take a listen for yourself.
Every time these guys since the anthem together, it is so powerful.
McDonald, who has been singing for the Caps for over 20 years, earned national attention earlier in the season after singing O Canada in French during a Caps-Habs regular-season game.
This is the loudest Verizon Center has been all year.
What a moment.
