Score another one for the Boston Bruins.
Just two days after EA Sports’ “NHL 14” video game simulator predicted a Stanley Cup victory for Boston in this year’s playoffs, actor Michael J. Fox followed suit by picking the Bruins to defeat the Anaheim Ducks in the final and take home the hardware in 2014.

In this creative photo, Fox uses a special playoff-edition “Puck Cakes” bracket to convey how he believes this year’s playoffs will go down.
Perhaps the biggest surprise in Fox’s bracket are the Columbus Blue Jackets, whom he has upsetting the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Rangers en route to a showdown with the Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals.
In the Western Conference, Fox has the Ducks advancing to the Stanley Cup Final after downing the Dallas Stars, in-state rival San Jose Sharks and defending champion Chicago Blackhawks.
As for the Puck Cakes, they are the result of a partnership between NBC Sports Group and renowned chef Thomas Keller and consist of a “marshmallow and a shortbread cookie encased in a chocolate shell.”
Victory never has tasted so good.
