Ottawa Senators fans just wanted to cheer their team's return from Boston on Sunday, but Guy Boucher made sure to give them a little extra.

Boucher, the coach of the Senators, stopped his truck to shake hands and show his appreciation for the fans who greeted the team at Macdonald-Cartier Airport after Ottawa advanced with a 3-2 win in overtime in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference First Round against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden.

The fans chanted "Guy Bou-cher!" to show their support for the first-year coach's gesture. Boucher guided Ottawa to its first Stanley Cup Playoff series win since 2013.

The Senators will have home-ice advantage in the second round against the New York Rangers. Game 1 is at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; CNBC, CBC, TVA Sports).
