Fenway Park had Stanley Cup fever Wednesday afternoon.
“We Want The Cup” it said on the manual scoreboard in left field as the Red Sox took batting practice before their game against the Texas Rangers, and several players were dressed in Bruins gear.
The Sox changed the start time of the game from 7:10 p.m. to 4:05 p.m. to accommodate fans who want to watch Game 7 against the St. Louis Blues.
“It should be fun,” manager Alex Cora said. “They’ve done an outstanding job. Winning Game 6 and they worked so hard to get to this point. I wish them luck. It would be amazing to have three trophies here in the city at the same time.”
No city has held three championships simultaneously since Detroit in 1935-36 with the Tigers, Lions, and Red Wings.
Now the Bruins have a chance to join the Red Sox and Patriots as champions.
Cora was pressed for a prediction.
“Bruins by 4-1,” he said.
Cora had tickets for the game, and it’s likely some Sox players will be on hand, too.
