The Los Angeles Kings delivered a ruthless burn to St. Louis on Twitter

BY Pete Blackburn • January 13, 2017

The Los Angeles Kings played host to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night at Staples Center. Not only did the Kings clobber the hockey team from St. Louis 5-1, but they also used a timely joke to ruthlessly troll the city on Twitter.

After jumping out to an early 2-0 lead, the Kings official Twitter account unleashed this burn.

That's obviously a reference to Thursday's official announcement that the Chargers were moving to L.A., exactly one year after the city poached the Rams from St. Louis.

As you can imagine, the burn stung a little bit for football fans from St. Louis, so the responses were quite amusing.

The Kings weren't the only NHL team who used the Chargers' relocation to have a bit of fun on social media Thursday. The Tampa Bay Lightning and Dallas Stars both took tremendous jabs at the football team regarding the logo they rolled out immediately after the move became official.
