Edmonton Oilers fans picked up their anthem singer in advance of Game 3 of their second-round series versus the Anaheim Ducks.

When local country act Brett Kissel’s mic malfunctioned, he quickly shifted to improvisation mode, requesting that the capacity crowd at Rogers Place perform the anthem of the opposition.

Of course, Oilers fans would accept their civic duty, belting out an otherwise flawless rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner in unison before being enlisted for O Canada as well.

Kissel had the guitar ready, so he at least looked as though he was fully prepared to earn his money on Sunday.

But there was at least one conspiracy theorist.

Either way, Kissel was appreciative.
