Alex Cora shares funny story about 'advice' he gave Bruins coach

Alex Cora shares funny story about 'advice' he gave Bruins coach Coaching in his first Stanley Cup Final, Boston Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy turned to Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora for advice on getting through a championship series. Apparently, he didn’t get much. Cora shared a story about Cassidy calling him. While the Red Sox skipper was encouraging, he made it known that hockey is not a strength. Alex Cora said Bruce Cassidy called him and asked for advice the other day: “I’m like, we don’t play hockey in Puerto Rico. Just keep doing what you’re doing and you’ll be fine.”— Chris Mason (@ByChrisMason) May 29, 2019 Cora would be a natural person to talk to about how to get through a championship series.

Since 2001, no sports city has been spoiled quite like Boston.

When the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53, it marked Boston’s 12th championship between the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB since 2000. If the Boston Bruins manage to defeat the St. Louis Blues in Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBC; live stream), they’d push that ridiculous total to 13 titles, and end a “drought” that only started in February.

Though another championship for a Boston team may seem redundant, Bruins fans are ready for it to Boston is different and the city's sports fans know it and love it. The city's third championship in It goes beyond hoping for a win and turns into putting in requests on when they need them to win.

As the Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues face off in the deciding Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday, Boston is also vying It’s almost hard these days to remember Boston fans as what they used to be: those long-suffering, lovable losers, who endured endless seasons of traumatizing

Let’s zoom in a bit to the dominance Boston has enjoyed since Tom Brady and the Patriots shocked the then-St. Louis Rams and “The Greatest Show on Turf.”

Bruins championship: One (2011)

Boston stunned the Canucks in the most recent Game 7 of a Stanley Cup Final, and Vancouver rioted.

The Bruins also made it to the 2013 Stanley Cup Final, falling to the Chicago Blackhawks as they rattled off a stunning 17-second spree to win Game 6. Boston players discussed the highs and lows of their two previous Stanley Cup Final experiences as they ready for Wednesday’s Game 7.

While the Bruins missed the playoffs in 2014-15 and 2015-16, this team has been competitive for quite some time, as strong moves like drafting David Pastrnak and Charlie McAvoy really gave this Bruins team a shot in the arm.

Though another championship for a Boston team may seem redundant, Bruins fans are ready for it to Boston is different and the city's sports fans know it and love it. The city's third championship in It goes beyond hoping for a win and turns into putting in requests on when they need them to win.

Patriots championships: Six (2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, 2016, 2018)

It’s interesting to consider the Patriots’ ascent from Tom Brady shaking his head in disbelief at upsetting the Rams to becoming almost Terminator-level winning machines in more recent years, to the point that the Eagles and Giants were the teams who were shocking the sports world when they beat New England.

Another element of the Patriots’ dominance – and thus Boston sports fans being spoiled – is that they’ve been great for so long that those six championships only tell part of the story. Again, they’ve been upset in those big games too, as they also made the Super Bowl in 2007, 2011, and 2017. So, they’ve appeared in nine Super Bowls since 2001, and have only missed the playoffs twice during that span.

Many adult Boston sports fans have only known a winning Patriots team. Wild.

Red Sox championships:Four (2004, 2007, 2013, 2018)

Stars lead 7-2 Boston rout of Blues, Bruins up 2-1 in final

Stars lead 7-2 Boston rout of Blues, Bruins up 2-1 in final Patrice Bergeron and the Boston Bruins' best players took the criticism to heart.They weren't good enough through the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final and needed to be better. And they were. BOX SCORE: BRUINS 7, BLUES 2 The stars came out on Saturday night and propelled Boston to a 7-2 rout of the St. Louis Blues to take a 2-1 series lead. Bergeron and defenseman Torey Krug each scored a goal and had two assists, David Pastrnak scored his first goal of the series and the top power-play unit was a perfect 3 for 3.

The Boston Bruins are hoping to end the city's (3-month) championship drought But since then: Nothing. And Boston 's sports fans are counting on the Bruins to end the interminable title drought. If that doesn't seem like a long time ago, try telling that to the newly spoiled Boston fans who have

The Patriots’ unlikely story was something, but any hint of Boston being a tragic sports city was scuttled in 2004, when the Red Sox broke their many curses and went on an improbable World Series run. By the time they won their fourth contemporary championship in October – mere months before the Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl – it almost felt clinical for some sports/baseball fans.

The Red Sox have been a competitive team for a long time, and their championship teams have seen some different iterations, giving Boston fans the joy of having many different heroes.

Celtics championship:One (2008)

The Celtics have had multiple dynasties over the years, and while they didn’t quite reach that level during this resounding run, Boston fans still enjoyed one title.

The Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen (not to mention Rajon Rondo) combined to win a title, taking advantage of a short window of time where those veterans were all still at or near their peaks as NBA players. In teaming up, they were part of a trend of superstar team-ups that continued with LeBron in Miami and, really, just look around the NBA at the latest bits of speculation.

Boston Bruins center Charlie Coyle experienced plenty of championships as a Massachusetts native. He said young sports fans in Boston are spoiled by their teams’ success. Younger generation used to titles. “Kids who are 20 and under don’t understand what real life is,” Steele said.

As you can see in the video above this post’s headline, the latest, Kyrie Irving-powered iteration of the Celtics fell short this past postseason. Still, Boston sports fans still had the pleasure of watching an NBA team with legitimate aspirations, while celebrating championships by the Patriots, Red Sox, and possibly the Bruins depending upon how Game 7 goes on Wednesday.

Yeah … that’s ridiculous. It’s tough to imagine a major sports city matching this anytime soon, so as spoiled as Boston sports fans have become, they should do their best to cherish this. Granted, it’s tougher to savor things when you’re at a buffet …

Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final airs on NBC at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday (stream here).

Fans shrug off rain to honor Stanley Cup champion Blues.
ST. LOUIS (AP) Large crowds are gathering in downtown St. Louis despite heavy rain, awaiting a parade and rally to honor the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues. The Blues beat the Boston Bruins 4-1 Wednesday in Game 7 to win their first championship. The Blues joined the NHL as an expansion team in 1967 and made it to the Stanley Cup Final in each of the team's first three seasons, without winning a game. The team hadn't been back until this year. Fans began lining the streets hours before the parade, despite the rain. The parade will travel down Market Street to the Gateway Arch for a rally. The last time St.
