(NECN: Katelyn Tivnan, Boston) - Some of the best athletes in the world are back home in New England.
On Tuesday, 10 Olympians returning from Sochi received some recognition by the Boston Bruins at T.D. Garden.
The group - wearing their medals around their necks - met at center ice for the ceremonial puck drop, kicking off the game against the Florida Panthers.
Double bronze medalist Steve Langton from Melrose, Mass. says seeing this kind of support at home makes all of the hard work worth it.
"Standing on the podium in Sochi, I mean, I heard the cheers from home loud and proud, and it was that type of support that made standing on the podium that much sweeter," he said.
