Joe Kelly gets standing ovation from TD Garden crowd

The Bruins may have shifted away from fighting, doing so in favor of some welcomed goal-scoring prowess, but they do a brawler in their crowd tonight: Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly. 

Just one night after Kelly received a standing ovation in his first appearance on a Fenway mound since his fight with the Yankees' Tyler Austin, Kelly was greeted with yet another standing ovation, this time from the rockin' TD Garden crowd in attendance for Game 2 between the Bruins and Maple Leafs.

Shown during a TV timeout late in the period, Kelly, waving a gold Bruins Rally Towel, pumped the crowd up, and the Bruins scored just 30 seconds later to grab a 4-0 lead after one. 

Perhaps Kelly can go for a standing ovation trifecta with a return to the Garden on Sunday for Game 1 between the Celtics and Bucks.
