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.

Forward David Krejci leads the Bruins with 21 points.

Boston ousts Detroit in six games before eliminating Montreal in five. The Bruins advance to the final by dispatching the Rangers, with Patrice Bergeron scoring the winner five minutes in overtime in Game 7.

The Sharks advance at the expense of Los Angeles (in six games), Anaheim (five) and Colorado (six).

The simulation has goalies Carey Price and Henrik Lundqvist leading Montreal and the New York Rangers to 4-0 first-round sweeps over Tampa and Philadelphia, respectively.

Also in the East, Pittsburgh opens with a five-game series win over Columbus before falling to the Rangers in six games.

The defending champion Chicago Blackhawks' dream of a Stanley Cup repeat comes to an end in the second round in a seven-game series with the upstart Colorado Avalanche. The Hawks defeat the Blues in seven games in the first round.

In other first-round Western Conference action, Colorado edges Minnesota in seven games and Anaheim disposes of Dallas in five.
