Wednesday is World Kindness Day, and the Carolina Hurricanes are celebrating by spreading a little love around the league.
The premise was simple — one kind tweet for each team in the NHL — and the result is, well, really quite nice. Here’s a roundup of some of the best tweets from the thread of kindness:

If you check out the thread in its entirety, you’ll notice there’s one team missing: The Washington Capitals. And there’s a clever reason for that, too. Back in April, the Hurricanes eliminated the Capitals in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, a series that also featured some social media jabs.
So… as Carolina’s present-day Twitter bio states… they took Washington’s advice to heart.
(Hey, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all… right?)
Well played, ‘Canes.
