I don’t think Britney Spears has ever been accused of being the biggest hockey fan in the world but, still, the tweet she sent out on Tuesday afternoon was a bit of a head-scratcher. With the Los Angeles Kings currently holding a 3-0 series lead over the New York Rangers, Britney decided it’d be a great time to show her support for the team by tweeting out a photo.
