The Chicago Blackhawks opened up their series against the Los Angeles Kings yesterday with a 3-1 victory in a tightly contested game one.
Defenseman Duncan Keith scored the game-winner and Brandon Saad had two points (a goal and an assist) in the contest.
The series is going to be a close one and could become a new age rivalry, so much so that the two team’s Twitter pages have gotten in on the action via a series of funny wagers.
Here is a transcript of the wager as it happened:
@LAKings – @NHLBlackhawks Alright, here’s the wager; loser has to change twitter picture and name to opposing logo and hashtag. Deal?
@NHLBlackhawks – @LAKings That’ so 2013. How about loser donates signed captain’s jersey to winning team’s charity.
@LAKings -@NHLBlackhawks add loser sends a pizza to the winner and it’s a deal.
@NHLBlackhawks – @LAKings Done. Note we don’t roll with alfalfa sprouts and mashed yeast though.
The Kings got the bets off to a start, but like the series so far Chicago is up. The creativity behind the poster of the Chicago account is definetely of a higher grade. They deserve two thumbs up for their comment “we don’t roll with alfalfa sprouts and mashed yeast though.”
Do you think the Blackhawks will send a deep dish if they lose the series? Or will Dustin Brown be getting out his marker to sign a jersey heading for Chicago’s charity.
