(CBS News) Before Game 2 in Boston between the Bruins and Maple Leafs on Saturday night, the Bruins had a special guest in their fan banner captain ceremony before the game. It was Jeff Bauman, a victim of the Boston Marathon bombings who lost both legs below the knee in the attack and was instrumental in helping to identify the bombing suspects.

Bauman wasn’t waving a Bruins banner, but a Boston Strong banner in Bruins colors. Making it all the better was seeing the ear-to-ear smile on Bauman’s face.

Bauman also released a statement about the experience.
