Video game simulation has Boston Bruins winning Stanley Cup over San Jose Sharks

TORONTO - A video game simulation has the Boston Bruins winning the Stanley Cup in six games against the San Jose Sharks.

The EA Sports simulation, using the made-in-Vancouver "NHL 14" game, has Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask winning the Conn Smythe Trophy with a goals-against average of 1.56 and .948 save percentage with four shutouts.

The simulation has goalies Carey Price and Henrik Lundqvist leading Montreal and the New York Rangers, respectively, to 4-0 first-round sweeps.

The defending champion Chicago Blackhawks' dream of a Stanley Cup repeat come to an end in the second round in a seven-game series with the upstart Colorado Avalanche.

The Bruins advance to the final by dispatching the Rangers, with Patrice Bergeron scoring the winner five minutes in overtime in Game 7.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
