Tweets of the Game: Flames Heat Up a Rivalry

The LA Kings and Calgary Flames met for the first time since last season's intense match up and things haven't changed much

by LA Kings @LAKings / LAKings.com

A lot was up in the air. Would Jagr debut his silky lettuce? What would happen with Drew Doughty and Matthew Tkachuk?
So many questions.

Tweet from @MichellePinsky: Also, i���m SOOOOOO excited to see Jagr play!!! #LAKings #CGYvsLAK #JagrTime

Tweet from @whitlextaylor: I'm hoping that Andreoff is only in the lineup to keep Tkachuk in line #LAKings

Tweet from @hipchecked: Calling it now...Andreoff goes after Tkachuk and challenges him to drop the mitts. #LAKings

Tweet from @juneslili: Don't you dare lay a hand on Doughty. It won't fly. Not this time. #GKG pic.twitter.com/XTFg33TeDw

Oh, and we're still loving the new lights.

It was also Student Night and LA Galaxy night! 
If you missed it, fans received free LA Kings & LA Galaxy co-branded scarves and hats with their ticket purchase.
