So we know that the oddsmakers think the Bruins don't have much of a chance against the Canucks, and we know that EA Sports feels much the same. Now, you can add the WhatIfSports NHL Simulation Engine to the list.
The website accurately predicted at the start of the playoffs that the Bruins and Canucks would meet in June to play for Lord Stanley's Cup.
The website used its engine to simulate the Stanley Cup Final 1,001 times, and the Canucks came out winners. It wasn't the dominance, though, that many are predicting. The end result had the Canucks winning 57.2 percent of the time, and the series typically went seven games.
Fortunately, for the sake of just about everyone who is eager to see this series get under way, the simulations end Wednesday night and the real hockey will take over. In the meantime, you can keep yourself busy by trying to imagine what another seven-game series is going to do to your health.
