Bruins honor a great little fan

Published On November 7, 2014 | By Alice Cook

The Boston Bruins to a man fist bumped 7 year old Liam Fitzgerald as they left their pre-game warm up last night before their game with the Edmonton Oilers.

Liam has Down syndrome and loves the Bruins.   NBC Nightly News picked up the story for their ‘Making a Difference’ segment.

Just looking at Liam’s face proved to me every picture tells a story, and sometimes those fist bumps can hurt!
