BOSTON -- Bill Belichick has won a Super Bowl against a St. Louis team as head coach of the New England Patriots, so it was only appropriate the Boston Bruins invited him to be the fan banner captain for Game 2 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final.
Belichick waved the banner alongside Special Olympics athlete James Coffey before the Bruins took on the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night, and the legendary coach's presence sent the TD Garden crowd into a frenzy. Check out the scene in the video below:
Belichick has won six Super Bowl titles with the Patriots, which is the most of any head coach in NFL history. His first championship with the Pats came during the 2001 season when New England upset the heavily favored St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI.
Beginning with that Super Bowl victory, Boston teams have a 3-0 record against St. Louis teams in championship series this century. The other two triumphs came when the Boston Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2004 and 2013 World Series.
The Bruins are hoping to join that list with a victory in this Cup Final.
