Just two days after completing the Boston Marathon with former Boston Bruins forward Bobby Carpenter, Denna Laing was on the ice to get the TD Garden crowd revved up as the Honorary Fan Banner Captain.

Before the Bruins' game against the Ottawa Senators, Laing, the former Boston Pride player who suffered a spinal cord injury at the 2015 Outdoor Women's Classic, was escorted on to the ice holding the giant Bruins flag.

Laing has inspired fans along her road to recovery and was given a video tribute citing her "determination" and "ceaseless persistence and optimism" on the scoreboard and got a standing ovation from fans.
