You might want to go with who EA Sports & Bovida.com are picking because it’s the same team.

In the sim, the Bruins beat the San Jose Sharks in six games with Tuukka Rask winning the Conn Smythe and, of course, Jarome Iginla finally getting his name on the Cup.
How does EA Sports come to these conclusions? Well, here’s how they explain it: “A simulation is conducted by artificial intelligence or logic of the videogame that uses real-life data from each player. Results are extrapolated by the videogame when two teams match up based on player ratings, line combinations, and include variances such as injuries and hot streaks to give a realistic outcome of a game or series.”
So, if you’re a Bruins fan, this should make you happy. For the rest of you, hope that the real games offer a different result.

|Detroit Red Wings||20/1|
