Devils fans picked up the support for Lauralie Mufute Friday night when the inhabitant anthem thespian forgot the difference median by her delivery of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
The teenaged performer started out clever but stopped before reaching “through the hazardous fight.” After a postponement Mufute restarted from the commencement of the verse but again stumbled.
The Prudential Center throng of over 14,000 was peaceful and means to help, picking up Mufute in unanimity before puck dump against the Sharks.
The Jersey City teen let her backup singers take core stage, mouthing the rest of the lyrics sung by the fans before leaving the ice with an elegant smile.
Mufute nailed the anthem before a Devils diversion last year, but Friday’s opening offering a touching moment she’ll likely never forget.
