It's official: Ginette Reno will sing the anthem at the Bell Centre on Tuesday evening before the start of what could be the series-clinching game between the Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
She made the announcement on her Facebook page Tuesday afternoon after a visit with her cardiologist.
She sang a stirring version of the anthem before Game 3 on Sunday night, and had not even taken her seat when Rene Bourque scored the game's first goal, after only 11 seconds had elapsed.
On Jan. 29, the well-known Quebec superstar suffered a heart attack in Florida, and then underwent emergency bypass surgery.
