The Boston Bruins received some words of encouragement from Conor McGregor prior to the UFC star dropping the ceremonial puck at TD Garden on Saturday night.

The Bruins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 in overtime on a goal by Brad Marchand, who celebrated by breaking out McGregor's famous strut.

"He's an incredible guy, very energetic," Marchand said of McGregor, according to Ken Powtak of the Associated Press. "He was humble. He was happy to be here. He's expressed that to everyone. It was an honor to meet him. It was great to have him here. It's something we'll remember."
