NHL 14 predicts St. Louis Blues win 2014 Stanley Cup

In the latest iteration of developer EA Canada's annual simulation of the full hockey season, NHL 14's predicted the St. Louis Blues as the Stanley Cup champion for the 2013-14 NHL season, the studio announced today.

It would be the first Stanley Cup in the history of the Blues, a team that was founded in 1967 and has appeared in the Stanley Cup Finals three times. In NHL 14's simulation, the Blues finished second in the Western Conference's Central Division, and third in the conference itself.

The team defeated the Minnesota Wild, Los Angeles Kings and the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks on the way to a Finals matchup with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Blues triumphed over the Pens in six games, with Alex Pietrangelo picking up Conn Smythe honors as the playoff MVP.

The real-life 2013-14 NHL season begins next Tuesday, Oct. 1. NHL 14 launched earlier this month on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. You can head over to the game's official website for the full breakdown of the NHL 14 season simulation.
