It's a ideal answer from the B's bench boss setting the tone for everybody else on the team headed into a game where confidence is high coming off Game 5's 5-1 victory in St. Louis, and where Boston has the clear advantage in terms of experience and mindset.

Jun 12, 2019; Boston, MA, USA; St. Louis Blues players pose for a team photo with the Stanley Cup after defeating the Boston Bruins in game seven of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden. With just two minutes remaining, Matt Grzelcyk managed to score Boston's lone goal.

It's time to play Gloria.

As one of the veterans on the Bruins, and someone who's been on both ends of the spectrum in the Stanley Cup Final, Patrice Bergeron understands how emotional the moment can be when the game and season are officially over. O'Reilly, 28, also won his first Cup, had a goal and an assist in the final game and finished the postseason with 23 points.

St. Louis showed it could put a stranglehold on opponents when playing with a lead.

Olympic gold medallist Aly Raisman and Julian Edelman waved a banner before the game while wearing David Ortiz jerseys; the Red Sox slugger is recuperating just a mile or so away from an assassination attempt in his native Dominican Republic. Portable party Rob Gronkowski also made an appearance on the video board.

Ryan O'Reilly and Alex Pietrangelo performed their magic, each scoring a goal in the first period.
