Paging Bill Mazeroski . . .

Those of us 107 or older are channeling a parallel between this Stanley Cup final and the 1960 World Series. After a period of Game Six in Boston, it’s Bruins 4, Canucks 0 — which makes it 16-1 for Boston so far in the three games played there.
Can you rout a team three times and still lose a seven-game series? Ask the ’60 Yankees, who beat Pittsburgh 16-3, 10-0 and 12-0, and lost in seven games to the Pirates, who won by pedestrian scores of 6-4, 3-2, 5-2 before Mazeroski’s memorable homer in the bottom of the ninth of game seven won it, 10-9. The difference is, the Yankees beat up the Pirates twice in their own ballpark, old Forbes Field.
There you have it. One team outscores the other 55-27 and loses the World Series.
