News at 11: Kings send tweet

The Canadian TV reporter started the question to Darryl Sutter, “The headlines today in the L.A. Times today are not about your win, but about a tweet…’’ Well, as long as you ignore the fact that there were no headlines in the paper about the tweet, and only one small link on the paper’s entire website, yes, that’s completely accurate. Right. But hey, it makes for good sensational TV, anyway. Not surprisingly, the Kings’ “you’re welcome’’ tweet got plenty of play from the broadcast media today, even though not a single person sans microphone admitted to caring a smidge about it. That included Canucks coach Alain Vigneault, Darryl Sutter, Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown, the zamboni driver, the mascot…you get the idea. In case you’re curious, here was some of the reaction today.

VIGNEAULT: “I don’t care about the Twitter world. I care about the Stanley Cup playoffs.”

SUTTER: “It certainly doesn’t come from us. … We’re in the playoffs, so it’s not even an issue. It certainly didn’t come from us.”

DOUGHTY: “I don’t really have much to say about that. Whatever. It has nothing to do with us, so we’ll just ignore it, I guess. … It was kind of funny, but I don’t know if we should be saying that at this point, after winning only one game.”

BROWN: “It probably makes news, I guess, but the guys in the room, some of them have Twitter accounts and they are responsible for those. Who knows who runs the Kings one. It’s really irrelevant to the guys in the room. I think everyone understands that we’ve won one game, and that means absolutely nothing.”
