The Boston Bruins found the perfect sequel to the 2011 Bruins as their Game 1 fan banner captains, as it was New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick who got TD Garden fired up for Wednesday’s Game 2 between the Bruins and Blues.

Belichick joins a long list of Patriots to show their love for the Bruins this spring, as Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, and David Andrews have also held the honor of being the team’s fan banner captain. Patriots owner Robert Kraft, meanwhile, was in the crowd for the team’s Game 1 win over the Blues.

It will be interesting to see if the Bruins are able to bring The (on-field) GOAT out should this series require a Game 5 or 7.

The Bruins are looking to take a 2-0 series lead over the Blues.
