The LA Kings Twitter account is also dominating the Canucks

Apr 16, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

The LA Kings have received several strong individual performances in their series with Vancouver.

Jonathan Quick has posted a 1.34 GAA and .965 save percentage. Dustin Brown is tied for the playoff goalscoring lead. And the person that runs the team’s Twitter account…is winning the Internet.

First, there was the mockery of Ryan Kesler and “To everyone in Canada outside of BC, you’re welcome” tweets after winning Game 1.

Then, the “We apologize in advance for anyone this tweet offends: #LAKings lead series 2-0” blast after Game 2.

Now — in the wake of Sunday’s Game 3 win that gave L.A. a seemingly insurmountable series lead — the Kings Twitter account was at it again:



The Kings issued a pseudo-apology after the first round of tweets — the ol’ “to anyone who found this offensive” routine — with VP of communications and content Mike Altieri saying “We encourage our digital team to be creative, interactive and apply a sense of humor whenever possible.”

So it’s safe to say they won’t be offering any mea culpas for the latest tweets which, to be fair, are kinda funny.

And accurate.

And, if you’re a Canucks fan…kinda sad.

    Loving it. Cheering for an underdog team never feels this good.

    But I mean, when the Kings’ goaltender has 10 shutouts in the regular season. I don’t expect the Canucks to solve Quick that easily.

      It all depends what type of Balls/Pride the Canucks have, if any.

      He was the only reason my fantasy team was at all relevant this year, for sure!

      (I had Pronger, Backstrom, Duchene, Heatley… other than Quick it was pretty much Team Fails-A-Lot.)

    I hate the kings but I love their twitter team and I’d love to see them sweep the canucks.

    Love what they’re doing. More teams should follow their lead. And yeah – Vancouver is learning ‘quickly’ who the best goalie on the ice is.
