The Boston Bruins have had some amazing faces wave the flag ahead of their home playoff games in recent years, and that trend continued Monday night at TD Garden.
Boston is looking to extend its second-round Stanley Cup playoff series lead to 2-0 against the New York Islanders after taking Game 1 on Saturday night. And even though the TD Garden crowd already was quite rowdy as they filled the seats, they had a special guest to help out a little more Monday.
Rick, Rob and Russ Hoyt served as the Bruins’ honorary fan banner captains for Game 2.
Rick and his father, Dick Hoyt, are well-known for competing in marathons and ironman competitions. Dick Hoyt died in March at age 80.
Check out the Hoyt family getting the crowd ready here.
Not a bad way to kick off the game.
