The Dodgers Invaded the Kings Twitter

The LA Kings made a huge mistake last night.

They were in Anaheim playing the Ducks for the first time this season.  As you know, they are set to play an outdoor hockey game at Dodger Stadium in late January, so this early match-up was a showcase for that Stadium Series hockey game.  With that in mind, the Kings let the Dodgers PR folks take control of the of their twitter account for the entire 2nd period of the game.

What could go wrong, right?

Well, the snark started off with a bang.

Even before officially taking over, Josh Tucker (the social media guru behind the Dodgers) decided to start the duck roast early.

In their first tweet on the Kings account, the Dodgers take the high road.

Only to fool us all with examples of their sophomoric charm.  I especially love the last link shown below.  

With hockey being the game of the evening, the Dodgers let Kings fan know about the day Vin Scully raced Jackie Robinson on skates.

Then they warmed up Kings mascot Bailey.

So, who's your favorite Kings of all-time?

And now some game notes:

By the end of the 2nd period the game was tied 1 to 1.  Then finished up tied 2 to 2 by the end of the 3rd period and overtime play.  The game had been a hard fought affair with plenty of checking, shots on goal and power play opportunities.  Overtime was especially fun to watch as numerous penalties caused confusing line combinations.  Fortunately, our goalie was better than theirs.  After an 8 round shootout, the Kings won the game on a goal by the aptly named Dwight King. Watch highlights here.

And now to the goodbyes.
