  • 00:34 •

The Boston Bruins were trying to take a stranglehold on the Stanley Cup Final and brought in a guy who knows a thing or two about bringing championships to Boston.

Bill Belichick, the six-time Super Bowl-winning coach of the New England Patriots, fired up the crowd as the Bruins banner captain for Game 2 against the St. Louis Blues at TD Garden.

Belichick waved the Bruins flag alongside Special Olympics athlete James Coffey and became the latest Patriots luminary to serve as banner captain.

He joined wide receiver Julian Edelman and recently retired tight end Rob Gronkowski, who did so during the Eastern Conference First Round against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

They aren't the only Patriots hoping the Bruins bring another championship to Boston. Legendary quarterback Tom Brady voiced over a hype video on Zdeno Chara's Instagram, and defensive backs Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung and wide receiver Phillip Dorsett discussed their admiration for the Bruins' run toward the championship.
