EA's NHL 13 predicts Stanley Cup glory for New York Rangers

EA Sports Will this virtual Stanley Cup be the only trophy the New York Rangers earn this postseason? (EA Sports)

By Adam Levine

In a simulation of the 2013 NHL playoffs, EA's popular NHL 13 game predicts Stanley Cup glory for the New York Rangers.

EA has the Rangers knocking off the Capitals, Penguins and Canadiens en route to a Stanley Cup showdown with the Blackhawks. EA has the Rangers taking that series in six games on the way to their fifth Stanley Cup.

The simulation credits Rangers center Brad Richards with a 24-point playoff surge behind seven goals and 17 assists.

Before you dismiss this somewhat unlikely outcome, remember that EA’s Madden 13 engine correctly predicted a Super Bowl victory by the Baltimore Ravens over the favored San Francisco 49ers. On the other hand, we’re talking about the Rangers, so we strongly caution against betting your hard-earned money on this outcome.

If you really want to get in the spirit, EA is conducting a poll to let fans decide which player will grace the cover of NHL 14.
