Players took to social media to express their excitement

BOSTON - Like almost every other New Englander, many of the Bruins watched and reacted to Sunday night's improbable 34-28 comeback victory for the New England Patriots over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, which secured their fifth championship in the past 17 years.

David Pastrnak tweeted a video of himself and other teammates celebrating after the Patriots captured the title in overtime on James White's two-yard touchdown run.

At the end of the night, Tom Brady was the ultimate star, throwing for a Super Bowl record 466 yards and leading the Patriots back from a 19-point fourth-quarter deficit. At one point, the Pats trailed by what seemed to be an insurmountable 25 points in the third quarter.

It is no secret that Boston athletes share a special bond that transcends their individual sports. Pastrnak showed love for Brady, who was named the game's MVP for a record fourth time, on Instagram, along with Matt Beleskey and Dorchester native Jimmy Hayes.

Joe Morrow and Bruins prospect Malcolm Subban also joined in on the fun, expressing their admiration for the greatest Patriot of all-time.

Dominic Moore sent his support to White, who like Moore dons the No. 28 on his jersey.

When Bobby Orr flew through the air after scoring the Stanley Cup winning goal during the 1970 Stanley Cup Final, he was forever immortalized in Boston sports history.

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman may have written himself into the history books with a circus-catch during the game-tying drive.

Hayes and Ryan Spooner both shared their excitement via Twitter after witnessing one of the greatest catches in sports history.

The Bruins will be back at practice Tuesday, looking to carry the Pats good vibes with them on the ice. Without a doubt, the B's won't be forgetting this game anytime soon.
