Rancourt, who has sung the national anthem at Bruins games for more than 35 years, said he was worried his emotions would overwhelm him during the performance.
“I’m sure that the people didn’t even realize how much help I actually did need. It was wonderful. The sound was carrying me, lifting me up in the room. It was just something indescribable," Rancourt said in an interview with WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Thursday.
"I’m afraid I would have probably broken up a few times during the anthem. I’m not ashamed to admit that,” he said.
