The Boston Bruins had a big win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night. It was a close series that went all the way to Game 7, with the Bruins finally winning in overtime. Despite some tough times during the season, the Bruins showed they could overcome challenges.

After the game, Bruins coach Jim Montgomery shared something interesting. He said he got advice from an unexpected person before the game: former Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock. Even though Babcock left the Maple Leafs in a not-so-great way, he still helped out by giving tips about the Maple Leafs players.

It's not clear exactly what Babcock said, but it definitely played a part in the Bruins' win. Montgomery also gave a shout-out to Tampa Bay Lightning coach John Cooper, who offered some encouraging words after his team got knocked out of the playoffs.
