R1, Gm1: Robert Clark joins the crowd in Edmonton and splits 'O Canada' singing duties with the Oilers faithful prior to puck drop

Two things about the Edmonton Oilers' long-awaited Stanley Cup Playoff game; it was really orange and it was really loud.

No moment exemplified this more than the singing of "O Canada" right before puck drop of Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round between the Oilers and San Jose Sharks at Rogers Place.

Anthem singer Robert Clark was just one dot in a sea of orange and let the fans take it away.

It had been 11 years since the Oilers hosted a playoff game, so there was a lot of pent up emotion that came spilling out in one glorious scene. 

And there was no denying the power of the crowd. You could see it on the players' faces that this atmosphere was rocking.
