BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- When a "Yankees suck" chant broke out inside the Garden during yesterday's Bruins' home-opening win over the Senators - punctuated by Patrice Bergeron's fourth career hat trick - B's coach Bruce Cassidy was asked about the experience after the game.
"I agree with that chant. I'm all for it," Cassidy said. "I'm excited for the Red Sox, I'm excited to see the Celtics play. I was at a game in the finals last year against Cleveland - they're a fun group to watch."
Cassidy went on to praise the success of Boston sports. "Obviously, all four teams have aspirations of winning. We just started and the Patriots just started, but the Red Sox are there and the Celtics are right around the corner," the head coach said before lambasting Cleveland's bad luck. "Let's face it, when you have four teams that are in the mix... It would suck to be like Cleveland - although they're turning the corner, I shouldn't say that. They've got a quarterback now, but I think we're spoiled here."
