The Caps suffered yet another loss Tuesday night to Ottawa, making it six straight losses for Washington. If that wasn't bad enough, the Senators official Twitter feed sent quite the insult as the team left town.
Always a pleasure to visit the other nation's capital when we leave with two points. #ThanksObama— Ottawa Senators (@Senators) January 22, 2014
The tweet immediately gained a lot of attention, and fans of both teams reacted expectedly. Caps fans thought the Ottawa tweet over the line, while Sens fans thought it was funny, and worse, accurate. It should be noted the Caps played the game without their best player and current NHL leading goal scorer Alex Ovechkin, but the folks in charge of the Senators Twitter account failed to mention that.
It's no surpise a natural rivalry would exist between the capitals of the U.S. and Canada, but the tweet certainly marks the biggest shot one team has taken at the other.
