Belichick celebrates Bruins win

While it's probably a bit much to say that Bill Belichick had an eye on Montreal while at work on the NFL Draft in Foxborough, the Patriots coach was aware of the Bruins playoff win Thursday night by the time he took the mic for his press conference following the first-round of draft action.

The Bruins beat the Canadians to tie the teams' playoff series at 2-2. The victory came in overtime with a goal from Matt Fraser, who was making his playoff debut after being called up from Boston's minor league affiliate in Providence for the game.

"They won in overtime, right? Goal from the guy they brought up today," Belichick said. "That's good personnel management by [General Manager] Peter [Chiarelli] and [Head Coach] Claude [Julien]. Hats off to them. That's great. That's great coming back here now tied up. Tough to win there in Montreal, too, so that's a big win for them. That's great. Congratulations to them."
