It’s over. The Los Angeles Kings have won the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history, defeating the New Jersey Devils in six games…
…will be what we write if EA Sports has predicted the finals correctly.
The video game company simulated each game, with the Kings winning the first 4-2 before dropping the next two 2-0 and 2-1 and sweeping the last three 2-0, 3-2 and 3-1.
Not to worry though, Devils fans – last year, EA predicted the Vancouver Canucks would beat the Boston Bruins in seven games.
See? Everyone gets predictions wrong. (Though usually not as badly as we do.)
