The Discovery Channel might have just won the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs.
On a day when Twitter was flooded with the latest news surrounding the New England Patriots’ response to the Wells Report, the Discovery Channel offered a refreshing and entertaining respite from DeflateGate — or DeflateWeight, if you will. The channel’s official Twitter account was doing what it does, tweeting out information about animals, when the Pittsburgh Penguins saw an opportunity to jump in on the fun.

The Penguins, of course, were eliminated in the first round of the postseason by the New York Rangers, marking the franchise’s earliest playoff exit in eight years. On the bright side, that gives the team a good chunk of time to learn how to avoid being trolled on Twitter in the future.
