Shut it down. There is no need to even hold the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2014. Thanks to Twitter, we already know that the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to win – well, kind of.
The social media platform first collected data on how many Twitter mentions each NHL playoff team had throughout the course of the season. It then predicted round-by-round winners based off the highest number of mentions.
The Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks had the loudest fan bases during the regular season, followed by the Los Angeles Kings and Boston Bruins.
