This should give your chills chills. Before last night's Bruins-Maple Leafs game—a 4-2 Toronto win, but we're not worried about that now—the TD Garden went dark for an unannounced ceremony. The Foo Fighters' "All My Life" started playing. And then out came the night's honorary captain, Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, waving a Bruins flag to a crowd that went utterly apeshit. It was incredible.
Bauman was the subject of one of the most devestating photos to come from that Monday, and his remarkable recovery has served as a symbol for the city. As the jumbotron reads, "By now you know his inspirational story. His perseverance in the face of great adversity represents all that is Boston Strong.”
