Among the usual suspects at TD Garden for Game 7 between the Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday night was none other than popular singer-songwriter Justin Bieber.
And at least one player was well-aware of his presence. Shortly after Boston secured a 5-1 victory to advance to the second round, right winger David Pastrnak tweeted, “Not today,” and tagged Bieber.

Joined by his wife, model Hailey Baldwin, Bieber hid his Leafs fandom by opting for a more discreet look consisting of a black hoodie and a backward black hat. There were no doubts regarding his allegiances, however, as the 25-year-old shared a photo of the Maple Leafs logo on Instagram before puck drop.
He captioned the post: “Dear lord please be with [center] Austin (sic) Mathews, [right winger] Mitch Marner and all of the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight as they play game 7 against the Boston bruins..”
A Canada native, Bieber also attended a regular-season Leafs game with Baldwin in Toronto back in November.
Two days prior to Tuesday’s contest, the “Sorry” artist made an appearance on stage with pop star Ariana Grande during her set at the second weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif.
