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

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
