EA SPORTS NHL Simulation signals an Ottawa Celebration!


The Ottawa Senators will be the Stanley Cup Champions, according to a simulation of the Stanley Cup Finals using the EA SPORTS NHL videogame to predict a winner. After a tight six game series, Ottawa will edge out The Anaheim Ducks and bring Lord Stanley’s Mug back to Canada for the first time since 1993.

Game One: Anaheim over Ottawa 2-0

Recap - It was a battle of goaltenders in game one with neither team scoring in the first two periods as Jean-Sebastian Giguere and Ray Emery gave notice to anyone thinking this was going to be a high scoring affair. Both teams had a number of opportunities to score with the extra attacker as and even with a two minute two-man power play advantage in the second period, Ottawa was unable to beat Giguere who robbed Jason Spezza on a one-timer in close. It wasn’t until the third period when Teemu Selanne broke loose and put a wrist shot underneath the pad of Ray Emery to put the home side up by a goal. Travis Moen added an empty net as the home side took game one by a final of 2-0.
