The Dallas Stars took brief moments to remember former Navy Seal Chris Kyle.
Miss Texas USA Allie Nugent called Chris Kyle's wife Taya and asked if she wanted to drop the puck with her as an honor for Taya's fallen husband.
Chris Kyle along with his friend Chad Littlefield were both murdered at a gun range near Glen Rose trying to help Iraq war veteran Eddie Routh who suffers from PTSD.
For the first time since he was laid to rest at Texas State Cemetery in Austin, Mrs. Kyle spoke to the public and said she's blown away by the support coming from across the country.
"It's an honor. Of course I always think he's amazing and a wonderful man. It's just neat to see the patriotism from the people. The way they love and support Chris but perhaps even more importantly the way that America and the state of Texas comes together to give a nod to patriotism," said Taya Kyle.
The Dallas Stars also made Taya the hometown hero of the game and honored her during the national anthem.
