Was David Pastrnak hacked? Bruins star's strange tweet suggests so

Either David Pastrnak is a big Tom Wilson fan, or someone stole his phone Tuesday night.

The Boston Bruins winger, fresh off his second practice with the team in Toronto since emerging from quarantine, sent a head-scratching tweet around 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Quick context: Pastrnak scored 48 goals before the 2019-20 NHL season shut down, tied with Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin for the most in the league. Wilson, Ovechkin's teammate, had more penalty minutes in this season alone (93) than goals in his career (78).

So, yeah. Pastrnak probably didn't write this tweet.

But who did? As former NHL player John Scott pointed out, Boston winger Brad Marchand is an obvious suspect.

Defenseman Torey Krug can't be ruled out, either.

Or what if Wilson himself managed to commandeer Pastrnak's phone? (The Bruins and Capitals are staying in the same Toronto hotel, after all...)

Wilson also thanked Pastrnak just minutes after his tweet, so we're not ruling out some foul play on the Capitals' part.

Pastrnak and Wilson can work things out in person soon: The Bruins play Washington on Sunday, Aug. 9, in one of their three Eastern Conference round-robin games of the NHL restart.

Until then, Pastrnak might want to update his password.
