A kind gesture by the Edmonton Oilers faithful was not lost on the opposition.

Anaheim Ducks owners Henry and Susan Samueli released a statement congratulating Oilers fans who sang both the American and Canadian National anthems ahead of Game 3 after country music star Brett Kissel’s mic suffered a malfunction.

“Congratulations to the Edmonton fans for creating such a special moment last night by singing both of the national anthems. To hear the audience passionately sing both the Canadian and United States anthems was inspiring and powerful. Well done, Edmonton!”

Oilers fans will have the opportunity to show off their pipes again on Wednesday for Game 4.
