The Los Angeles Kings had only moments to enjoy their overtime Game 7 victory against the Blackhawks last night, when the puck dropped on their battle for NHL Twitter dominance against the New York Rangers began.

After attacking the Kings account with Puff Daddy quotes for their grammar failings, the Rangers pointed out that their opponents had made a poor choice of photo for another celebratory tweet.

This may be the first Stanley Cup Final fought through 140 characters instead of three periods. Just try and leave Kevin McCallister out of it.
