Conan O’Brien thinks it’s funny the Kings and Coyotes are playing each other


Internet celebrity Conan O’Brien tweeted a rather untimely joke Friday.

“The @LAKings are playing the @PhoenixCoyotes? I wonder which city that shouldn’t have a hockey team will win,” wrote O’Brien, who boasts over 5 million followers on Twitter.

Of course, the Los Angeles Kings aren’t actually playing the Phoenix Coyotes – they already eliminated them Tuesday to advance to the Stanley Cup finals.

Not surprisingly, the Kings responded in convincing fashion via Twitter: “Clearly, that joke wasn’t meant for prime time.”

O’Brien is also rumored to host a late-night television program.
