-- The Bruins beat the Maple Leafs in Game 7 on Tuesday and Tom Brady was not only watching but was also commenting on the action on Twitter.

He told the Bruins to “pour it on” after the team took a 2-0 lead and then suggested Zdeno Chara could have a second career as a football player.

And Kyle Van Noy tried to bring the Bruins some luck by cursing the Maple Leafs with a picture of Drake.

-- David Pastrnak was also active on Twitter after his team’s win, with a dig at Justin Bieber, of all people.

Bieber and his wife, Hailey Baldwin, were in attendance at the Garden rooting for the Maple Leafs, as Bieber is from Canada.

And Pastrnak had a message ready to go for Bieber just minutes after the Bruins’ win, tweeting, “Not today @justinbieber #BostonStrong.”

He also trolled Bieber on Instagram.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Julian Edelman chugging a beer was awesome. Probably got everyone fired up, including us. Good for him. We’ll return the favor at some point down the road. I thought it was outstanding. That’s Game 7 playoff hockey for you right there." -- Bruce Cassidy, on the atmosphere at the TD Garden during Game 7
