WATCH: Tuukka Rask slow to get up after taking big hit, stays in the game

The Boston Bruins suffered another injury scare on Monday night. After taking a big hit, starting goalie Tuukka Rask looked to be hurt.

In the second period, Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy knocked Maple Leafs center John Tavares into Rask in the net. McAvoy prevented the scoring chance, but Rask immediately went down clutching his head, as seen in this video from Conor Ryan of the Boston Sports Journal.

However, after being examined, Rask was deemed fit to play and remained in the game.

The Bruins do have a capable backup in Jaroslav Halak. This season, Halak played in 40 games this year and was able to post a 22-11-4 record with a 2.34 goals against average. But for now, it appears that Rask will be fine.

The Boston sports fraternity is all in for Game 7.

The Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs will clash at TD Garden on Tuesday night in a winner-take-all matchup to decide their first-round Stanley Cup Playoffs series. So, B's defenseman Zdeno Chara decided to get Bruins fans fired up Monday night in an Instagram post.

Among those Bruins fans he fired up? New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who dropped "#madeforthis go bruins!" in Chara's comment section.

The comment was simple but effective, and both Chara and teammate Brad Marchand couldn't have been more thrilled. Here are both players' reactions to Brady's comment. (Warning: Marchand's is very NSFW.)

TB12 is on the wagon, indeed.

Tuesday will mark the Bruins' eighth Game 7 since the 2011 postseason, and they'll be hoping to continue the Leafs' track record of futility in what should be an awesome game.
