2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs as Predicted by Twitter Mentions

2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs as Predicted by Twitter Mentions
Twitter

The 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs are set to get underway on Wednesday night, and it's anybody's guess as to who will hoist Lord Stanley's Cup this year. If Twitter has its way, two recent champions will square off for a chance to be called the NHL's best once again.

Twitter was able to fill out a bracket based on the number of mentions each team has had throughout the 2013-14 NHL season. 

Despite finishing with the second-most points in the NHL, Twitter has the Anaheim Ducks being upset by the Dallas Stars. With rookie Frederik Andersen in goal, the Ducks apparently should be on upset alert.

If the mentions correctly predict the 2014 Stanley Cup finals, it will be a matchup of recent champions. The Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 2009, and the Chicago Blackhawks won it in 2010 and 2013.
