Very few experts and fans predicted the Nashville Predators would beat the Chicago Blackhawks in their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series.
Even fewer people predicted a Predators sweep, but that’s exactly what happened with Nashville’s 4-1 Game 4 win Thursday night.
The Preds’ mascot — named Gnash — decided to go on Twitter after Game 4 and mock ESPN’s panel of experts for all predicting a Chicago triumph.
The Predators will play the winner of the St. Louis Blues and Minnesota Wild. The Blues lead that series 3-1 with Game 5 set for Saturday.
