The Bruins kept everyone guessing when it came to their fan banner captain for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, and it's impossible to argue with their choice.

The message on the jumbotron introduced their "most inspirational fan" -- Liam Fitzgerald, aka "Fist Bump Kid." Fitzgerald was battling leukemia the last time the Bruins won the Cup in 2011 and later became a viral sensation when video of him fist-bumping every Bruin as they left the ice began circulating.

Fitzgerald wasn't alone -- Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman and Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman, both of whom served as fan banner captains earlier this postseason, joined him decked out in David Ortiz jerseys.
