Four nights after having the biggest comeback win in team history, the Washington Capitals will play hockey again and they may have a very famous guest in the stands to watch.
Tuesday after the Leafs’ morning skate, Auston Matthews said he believes Justin Bieber will be at Scotiabank Arena for the game.

Bieber, a London, Ontario native, was sitting behind the Leafs bench during the team’s last home game against the San Jose Sharks on Friday. Bieber attended the game with his dad.
Morgan Rielly scored the game-winning goal late in the third period sending Biebs into a huge celebration in the stands.
Bieber and Matthews have developed a mutual friendship after the Leafs superstar repped Bieber’s clothing line in an Instagram photo earlier in the year.
Bieber re-shared the image on his IG, which for famous people is like becoming Facebook official.
Bieber came to the game wearing Matthews’ jersey, and Auston was asked about that Tuesday.
“It’s pretty sweet,” Matthews said. “I think he’s coming tonight too. It’s cool having guys like that be big fans of the team and support our team. Obviously him being from here and him being who he is it’s pretty awesome to see.”
“I didn’t notice (he was there) until our last TV timeout,” Mitch Marner added. “I was sitting beside (a teammate) and I usually look at the screen to see what happened the play before and it popped up he was there.”
While he was at the game, Bieber took a photo with the Leafs’ mascot, Carlton The Bear.
“I’ve met him once. I am (a fan of his music),” Matthews said. “He hasn’t really come out with something recent, an album or anything. He was talking about bringing one out before Christmas so we’ll see.”
