Noted sports fan/actress Alyssa Milano will run the NHL’s official Twitter feed during Game 3 of the Los Angeles Kings-Phoenix Coyotes series tonight.

The NHL’s feed is @NHL, so you can follow along for what will surely be extensive discussions of Corsi ratings and why save percentage is a superior way to judge a goalie than mere wins. If you have specific questions for Milano, you’d be wise to use the hashtag #AskAlyssa. There’s also a Pinterest page for the event, which you can check out here.

NHL.com reveals that this is the first time a celebrity has ever taken over the official Twitter account for the league.

My recommendation for a starter question? #AskAlyssa if Anze Kopitar is “the boss.”

(Actually, she probably won’t appreciate that reference.)

      I’ll say. Makes me wish I could go back and be a hockey or baseball player. Didn’t she date Wayne McBean and Rob Brown back in the day before she moved on to baseball players. Saw her at the Pre Super Bowl festivities this year and she looks phenominal.

    Anyone else think this is really lame? If I want to read Alyssa’s tweets, I’ll follow her (I already do).
