The LA Kings’ Twitter account, the most personable in all the land, is asking all seven Kings fans to vote for Anze Kopitar in Round 2 of EA Sports’ never-ending NHL 13 cover vote. The are doing so by taking an admittedly hilarious swipe at Kopitar's opponent, Claude Giroux, using that oh-so-familiar picture of G and his Nickelback gun. 

You know what to do. And while you’re doing it, vote for Scott Hartnell, who’s going up against the ugliest player in the league, Evgeni Malkin.

We would fire back at the Kings' social media coordinator and his entry-level salary… but, um, they have our former captain and leading goal scorer and are about to play in the Stanley Cup Finals.

    I told Claude not to go. Embarrasment. I am trading him to Columbus for Rick Nash straight up. NEW ERA IN FLYERS HISTORY

    The Kings twitter account is so awesome. Whoever writes it deserves a raise.
    Every day that organization does something that makes me feel less bad about rooting for them to win the cup now.

    Don’t worry. Claude Giroux will get more votes in a day than the Kings have in total fans.

    I feel like this stupid cover voting has been going on forever…longer than the playoffs itself. Just fucking end it already. At this point, I couldn’t give a shit what player’s on the cover.
