Prior to Tuesday night’s playoff-clinching win, Bruins interim coach Bruce Cassidy described the ways his team feeds off the success of its fellow Boston teams — the Red Sox, Celtics and New England Patriots.
Well, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and kicker Stephen Gostkowski, who is a self-proclaimed “huge Bruins fan,” were among the area’s athletes at TD Garden to support the Bruins on Saturday in their regular-season finale against the Washington Capitals. NESN.com’s Michaela Vernava caught up with Gostkowski in Boston’s dressing room after the game.
“It’s always good to support the teams around here,” Gostkowski said. “And (a Bruins game) is definitely one of the funnest live events you can see.”
The two-time Super Bowl winner certainly knows what it takes to become a champion, and he offered his thoughts as the Bruins embark on their first playoff run in three years.
“It’s unreal that they made the playoffs,” he said. “They’ve got a bunch of awesome players and guys who have won a championship here, and this is an unreal sports town. I’m sure they’re going to give it their best effort. They’ve got a bunch of warriors on their team. Hopefully they make a deep run.”
