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.
