-- The Bruins are doing their part to support the Red Sox in the playoffs this year.

First, Bruce Cassidy said ahead of Game 3 he is “all for” the “Yankees Suck” chant in the TD Garden crowd and then David Pastrnak trolled the Yankees on Twitter after the Red Sox beat the 16-1.

“Seeing Yankee Stadium empty  before the game is over is phenomenal. #DoDamage,” Pastrnak tweeted on Monday night.


The Red Sox look to quiet the Bronx crowd again in Game 4 on Tuesday night.


-- Steve Kerr was ejected from the Warriors’ preseason game against the Suns on Monday and told the refs they were actually doing him a favor.

"I don't want to be here anyway,” the coach said to the officials after he was tossed for coming onto the floor to protest a call.

Kerr then waved to the refs and high-fived some of his players as he walked to the locker room.

After the game he was asked if he really did want to be there.

"No comment," he said.

He then said he was trying to get ejected.

"I was trying to make a point and I was trying to back up my guys,” Kerr said. “We had all these offensive fouls, one after another. And I finally had enough … I was in the wrong, obviously. I got what I deserved."

But Steph Curry was a fan of the outburst.

"I love it," Curry said. "Love it. We got a good vibe going about what we're doing. It's never too early to get that fire going, so we'll see how we sustain that throughout the year. But when obviously a blatant call, we think, should go one way goes the other, he's going to have a reaction to it. It doesn't matter if it's preseason, regular season or playoffs. It's nice for him to have that fire for sure."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "This one I'll remember for a long time. Obviously, you don't go into the game expecting to make history or do anything like that, but let alone score 16 runs against a good New York Yankee team. So it was a good night overall for everyone. Like I said, this is one I'll remember for a long time, and hopefully we can carry this over into tomorrow." -- Brock Holt, after completing the first cycle in postseason history on Monday night
