Boston Bruins

In celebration of Irish Heritage Night, the Boston Bruins had a special visitor to TD Garden prior to puck-drop of Saturday’s tilt against the Columbus Blue Jackets: The Notorious Conor McGregor.

Flown in from Chicago, McGregor arrived shortly before puck-drop, and went into the Boston locker room before the game, presumably to give the Bruins a little pregame pump-up a team in the midst of a three-game slide could certainly use.

But McGregor’s night in Boston was not done until he got on the ice for a ceremonial puck drop.
