This weekend, the L.A. Kings succumbed to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference finals. The Blackhawks, who got off to a historically good start this season, closed out the series with a 4-3 double-overtime victory in game 5.
The reigning champs lost the series 4-1, and the Blackhawks will now face the Boston Bruins, who swept the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals, in an Original Six clash for the Stanley Cup.
So how did the Kings players and fans deal with their crushing defeat? Well, we have no idea, but their Twitter account handled the loss flawlessly.
Misery generally loves company, but unfortunately, the Penguins didn’t respond to the Kings’ generous offer. Odds are they couldn’t agree on a place that doesn’t I.D. so that Sidney “Patches” Crosby could get into the bar.
