“David Pastrnak” “tweeted” that Tom Wilson is the game’s best goal scorer, Tuesday night. The tweet is currently going viral on Twitter.
It’s unclear if this is Pastrnak’s real opinion or if he was hacked. The Capitals and Bruins are staying at the same hotel together, Toronto’s Hotel X, meaning Pasta’s phone or computer could have been grabbed by a pranking teammate or opponent.
In my opinion Tom Wilson is the best goal scorer in the league

Wilson replied minutes later saying, “Appreciate it Pasta! But I think @ovi8.”

The Capitals’ Twitter account posted an image of Wilson laughing.

Pastrnak scored 48 goals this season, sharing the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy with Alex Ovechkin this season.
Pastrnak and Wilson do have a history. Wilson speared Pasta in his raviolis during a game in December.

Pastrnak would then go after Wilson during a big melee at center ice.
