Watch It, Canada! Ottawa Senators mess with "The Star Spangled Banner"

It would seem that some Canadians are getting a little bit cocky since the Canadian Olympic Hockey team beat their American Counterparts in the Olympics last Sunday. Apparently some genius working for the Ottawa Senators decided it would be fun to show clips of Canadian gold medal winners during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" before Tuesday night's home game against the New York Rangers. This culminated with a clip of Sydney Crosby's game winning goal for the Canadians. There apparently was no similar video presentation during "O Canada."
How did the visiting Rangers take it? Well Rangers' right wingman Ryan Callahan says he wasn't even paying attention to it. "I didn't have any idea. I don't look at the scoreboard during the anthem. I look at the flag."
The Rangers beat the Senators 4-1, by the way. Put that in your humble pie and chew on it, Ottawa.
