The NHL season has been put on hold due to the coronavirus crisis, meaning we may have to wait a while to watch the Boston Bruins again.

As a way to make up for the loss of Bruins action, we'll be using the EA Sports NHL 20 video game to simulate each game on Boston's schedule until they finally return to action.

Previous Simulations:

The Boston Bruins were supposed to take on the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday, March 19 at Staples Center, here's how our simulation of that game went.

The Bruins defeated the Kings 2-0 thanks to a Charlie Coyle game-opening goal and a Tuukka Rask shutout. 

Here are the game stats:

Three Stars of the Game + Game Stats

Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick was the first star of the game while B's Tuukka Rask and Coyle were the second and third stars respectively. The Bruins dominated from top to bottom, including in the shots and hits department. 

Bruins Individual Stats

David Krejci led all B's skaters in shots with five, while Zdeno Chara led in ice time with 23:25 minutes of action. Tuukka Rask stopped all 21 shots in a shutout of the Kings. 


Kings Individual Stats

Alex Iafallo and two other of his Kings teammates led the team in shots with three while Quick stopped 30 of 31 shots and had a .968 SV% and 1.01 GAA. Drew Doughty led the Kings in ice time with 23:55 minutes of action. 

FINAL SCORE: Bruins 2, Kings 0

Bruins Record (Includes simulated games): 45-15-13 (103 points)

*NOTE: We did not include Boston's games against the Buffalo Sabres or Toronto Maple Leafs in the simulation, therefore the simulated record isn't 100 percent accurate*

Next Simulation: @  San Jose Sharks on Saturday

Be sure to keep an eye out for our Bruins vs. Sharks simulation which is set to drop on Saturday.
