Jeering of US anthem at Tampa/Toronto NHL playoff game

So, I tuned in a little while ago to catch game 7 between these two teams. Tampa has won the last two Stanley Cups, so I'd prefer they be dispatched to let some fresh blood in. Regardless, the young woman who handles the anthem duties in Toronto launched into the US anthem. There was loud jeering/booing throughout the anthem. The whole crowd didn't join in, mind you, but enough so that it was fairly loud and impossible to ignore. They did applaud politely at the end to recognize her efforts.

So, what if any reaction do you have to that? Does it make you angry to hear such disrespect, or do you not care? Is it a natural reaction given the current state of affairs in this country, or does it cross a line of decorum? If you're Canadian, how does it make you feel to see the Toronto fans react that way?
