The recent 4 game sweep of the heavily favored Chicago Blackhawks by the Nashville Predators in round one of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs got me to thinking about surprise post-season series sweeps in past sporting history.

Here's a few that come to mind:

1954 Giants World Series sweep of the 111-43 Indians. Dusty Rhodes with his "Chinese" homeruns in the Polo Grounds.

1966 Orioles World Series sweep of the Dodgers. Dodgers scored two runs in the four games.

1990 Reds World Series sweep of the Athletics.
