Despite having 44 shots on goal in game five, the Bruins were not able to outscore the Islanders, who only managed 19 shots. The Islanders took a 3-2 series lead heading back to New York, and it’s safe to say the Bruins have their work cut out for them. The next two games are do-or-die for

I keep waiting for the Bruins to take their game to the next level and pull away from the Islanders in this series, but it just hasn’t happened yet. The Islanders used their bend don’t break defense to retake game four after Mathew Barzal scored a magnificent goal late in the third period. There

I’m back with another NHL21 simulation featuring the Boston Bruins and New York Islanders, and we’re coming off of what I would consider to be a great success in game three! In the first round, we had a really good simulation for game two against the Capitals, and our game three simulation of the Islanders series

Two games down and heading to the Island, the series is tied up at one game apiece. Our NHL 21 simulation is one for two this series at predicting who the winner of the game will be, so let’s see who they think will grab the 2-1 series lead in game three!

I changed around the

The Bruins got the series off to a much better start than my game one simulation predicted on Saturday night. Much like their performance in game four of the Capitals series, the Bruins rebounded from a sloppy start to play an excellent overall game. That gave them a 4-2 win and a 1-0 series lead against

After a dominant series win in the first round over the Washington Capitals, the Boston Bruins will take on the New York Islanders in the East Division finals. It should be a tough series for the Bruins, who struggled against the Islanders for most of the season until their trade deadline acquisitions in April. As I

Thankfully, my game four simulation missed wildly on pretty much every prediction. In case you missed it, the simulation predicted the Capitals to win 6-2 and tie the series up at two games apiece (you can read the full article here). What really happened, though, was the Bruins played their best game of the series

Well, folks, I think it is safe to say that the game three simulation was not nearly as accurate as our game two prediction was. The simulation did get a couple of the goal scorers correct by predicting that Taylor Hall and Brad Marchand would score, but considering the simulation predicted the whole first and fourth

We are only two games into the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Bruins, and I’m already wondering if we’ll be able to get a more accurate simulation than game two gave us. In the simulation, the Bruins won 3-2 in overtime. In real life, the Bruins won 4-3 in overtime. In the simulation, Taylor Hall, Jake

Game one didn’t go as planned for the Boston Bruins in real life or my previous game simulation. Even with the Capitals starting goaltender going down with an injury, the first line couldn’t really muster up any offense, and the Capitals took the game in overtime on a fluke goal that trickled off the back of
