Hurricanes and Sabres Pregame Twitter Battle

Sports and social media are the perfect marriage of information and entertainment. Follow your favorite teams on Twitter and you get breaking news, live score updates and the occasional virtual pregame battle. Things are always heated on the ice and in the stands when the Carolina Hurricanes and Buffalo Sabres face-off, but today the tension started online hours before the game.

Really, Buffalo? You and your 46 points are going to title the Canes as “struggling?”

Canes response…

The Columbus Blue Jackets join the party…

Fans chirp in…

The NHL makes a subtle correction…

So, what was the Sabres response to all this social media buzz?

uhh-not-quite

The (one-sided) battle continues at PNC Arena at 7pm tonight. I’ll be tweeting from behind the Buffalo bench, so something ridiculous is bound to happen. Follow the fun: @CardiacCaneKP. Let’s Go Canes!
