I was on my way to Detroit Metro this morning at 3 a.m. and heard confirmation from Fox Sports Radio on what Clay Travis tweeted last night after the Predators swept the Blackhawks, the No. 1 seed. It’s true that an 8-seed has never swept a 1-seed in a series.
All those people who moved to Nashville for work finally have that going for them. But we have to address the hit that Duncan Keith laid on Viktor Arvidsson before we close the door on this series.
But it was Arvidsson with the last laugh — the empty netter (he had two goals in the game) to seal it and give the Predators what looks like an eventual matchup with St. Louis (Blues lead the Wild 3-1). Buckle up for that series. That’ll be just a 300 mile drive.

If you’re not counting the Reds over the A’s in 1990. https://t.co/nTa80dt3oU
