Marc Savard Felt ‘Chills’ Experiencing Fan Reaction to His Return From Injury

TD Garden was alive with excitement on Thursday night, excitement that Marc Savard is still feeling a day after his long-awaited return to the ice.

"I'm so grateful, obviously the crowd was phenomenal," Savard said of the fans' reaction to him stepping out onto the ice for the first time. "I get chills, even watching it after on the news I was still getting more chills. It was great, the fans were terrific."

Boston fans spent much of Thursday night's game out of their seats, as the Bruins piled on eight goals in the huge victory over the Lightning. It was clear from the get-go that Savvy's teammates were just as excited to have him back on the ice.
