David Pastrnak finally addressed his random tweet about Tom Wilson after the Bruins’ 4-1 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, Thursday.
Pasta, who tied Alex Ovechkin for the most goals (48) in the NHL this season, tweeted, “In my opinion Tom Wilson is the best goal scorer in the league.” Many fans and analysts suspected someone may have hacked Pastrnak’s phone.
“I just felt like it,” Pastrnak said according to the NHL’s Amalie Benjamin. “I wanted to say it. It was my opinion. Nobody hacked my Twitter. It was all me and it was my own fingers typed that in.”
He then added, “It was a little side bet with Tom from back in the day.”
Pastrnak scored Boston’s only goal against CBJ.
Later, Zdeno Chara and David Krejci added more confusion to the situation.

Before the Capitals’ exhibition game against the Hurricanes, Wilson was also asked about the tweet. He had no comment, beyond saying “shenanigans have begun.”

So I guess that settles it?
