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.
Watching the pre game show on @SNHockeyCentral in Winnipeg is getting me so fired up to be at the TD Garden tomorrow! I haven't been in the building since we won the Stanley Cup in 2011!! @NHLBruins fans we are going to bring the house down!! Can't wait!! #OnceaBruinAlwaysaBruin

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.
