    Marc Savard 'fired up' to attend Bruins-Maple Leafs Game 5 at TD Garden

    The Bruins will have a special guest in attendance for Friday night's Game 5 matchup against the Maple Leafs.

    Ex-B's star Marc Savard will be at TD Garden to cheer on his former team, and he's pumped about the opportunity.


    Could this mean Savard will be the Bruins' honorary fan banner captain? After all, Savard made his pitch last week to get the chance to wave the flag and fire up the crowd.

    If so, it's a great choice. Before Savard's NHL career came to an abrupt end in 2011 due to head injuries, he was among the most productive offensive players in the game. To this day, he's one of the most beloved players to ever suit up in a Bruins uniform.

    It's hard to imagine a better choice to get the TD Garden crowd rocking on Friday night.
