There's two things you don't mess with in Chicago: Our pizza, and our Blackhawks.

Whenever two teams get together in a playoff series, it’s traditional for them to make friendly wagers on the outcome, and the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings are no exception.

The two teams challenged each other in a recent exchange on Twitter.

Who will win the wager is still up for grabs, but we're willing to bet Blackhawks fans will rally behind their team, especially after an exciting Game 1 win.
