Watch: Julian Edelman chugs beer on big screen to get Bruins fans fired up
Julian Edelman served as an honorary captain for the Boston Bruins prior to their Game 7 matchup with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday, and the three-time Super Bowl champion did everything he could to get the home fans ready for battle.
Not long after the Bruins took a 1-0 lead in the first period, Edelman was shown on the TD Garden jumbotron waving a yellow towel. He then went Stone Cold Steve Austin and pounded a beer. As you might expect, the fans loved it.

The earliest cheers from Bruins fans came when Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen let up an incredibly soft goal, but perhaps it was Edelman’s influence that helped the Bruins take a 2-0 lead into the first intermission.
