The Detroit Red Wings and LA Kings Exchange Twitter Blows


The Los Angeles Kings Twitter account gained serious notoriety during the NHL Playoffs where they went around and ruthlessly made fun of different franchises, players and their Twitter accounts and nobody fired back any good chirps.  That changed today when they took a shot at the Detroit Red Wings:

The reason for the initial stab at the Wings was the Kings were having their writers go through and make predictions for next year’s playoffs; something that seems completely futile due to the guaranteed lockout.  I tend to think that the LA Kings account is run by a group of unemployed comedic writers, and I certainly hope that more NHL Twitter accounts join the smack talking; it keeps things interesting and they’re usually pretty funny.

The Kings did do what they do best though, and fired a shot back at Detroit.

I have to give the nod to the Red Wings on this one, chirping a team that has only won two cups in the last ten years, when you’ve only won one in 45 years is a bit of a stretch.  That being said, they have had some amazing chirps, and here are some of the best from the playoffs:
