NHL fans react to Trump's support for Florida after Game 4 loss

The Florida Panthers lost to the Edmonton Oilers in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. They were hoping to lift the cup in the elimination game but Edmonton dominated from the start. This was a disappointing loss for Panthers fans, who have since found another way to vent their frustration.

Former US president Donald Trump offered his support for the Florida Panthers after their Game 3 win that gave them a 3-0 lead. According to some, he was the reason Florida lost the game. Donald Trump's tweet on X read:

"Wow, the Florida Panthers are a fantastic Ice Hockey Team. They're 3-0 against the very good Edmonton Oilers from Canada. They're down 1 to 0 tonight, but it's still early. Hopefully they will put them away. Very impressive!"

NHL fans reacted to it after the Panthers' loss.

"Kiss of death," one fan said.
"THIS IS HIS FAULT," another fan said.
"Unfortunate for Donald John Trump as the Florida Panthers would not put the Edmonton Oilers away in a 8-1 loss to them in a cup-clinching game 4 of the stanley cup final," another fan said,

Here are some more reactions from fans on X.

"I'm confused. What part of his post makes it fit into this account? Said the series was 3-0, said they were losing the game 1-0 and that he hoped Florida would win lol. Seems like any normal post to me," a fan said.
"Known puck enjoyer Donald John Trump," another fan said.
"If the Oilers somehow come back down 3-0 in this series to win it all," a fan said,
