The Drake curse may still be alive and well, but we Bruins fans may have another Canadian superstar to thank for Tuesday night’s win.

The Boston Bruins won in a decisive 5-1 Game 7 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs, and now head to Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

New England Patriots defensive linebacker Kyle Van Noy raised his beer to the Canadian rapper on Twitter, even though Drake was at the Raptors victory over the Magic in Toronto Tuesday night.

Drake was in the building at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Sunday afternoon when the Leafs lost again, forcing a game 7 here in Boston, and he got flack from fans then. He was feeling pretty salty when leaving the Raptors game in Toronto tonight.

Back here in Boston, Justin Bieber was in attendance with his wife, playing the part of Canadian celebrity super fan.

Maybe this is the start of the Bieber curse?
