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.
The Boston Bruins were supposed to take on the Ottawa Senators on March 26 at TD Garden, here's how our simulation of that game went.
The B's bounced back after a disappointing loss to the Detroit Red Wings in Tuesday's simulation thanks to Tuukka Rask's 24-save night.
Here are the game stats:
Three Stars of the Game + Game Stats
Jake DeBrusk, David Krejci and Tuukka Rask were the three stars of the game against the Senators. DeBrusk and Krejci scored goals while Rask added 24 saves in the win. Despite trailing 26-20 in shots, the Bruins made their offensive opportunities count.
Bruins Individual Stats
DeBrusk and Krejci notched a goal and an assist in the win while Marchand added a goal of his own and Jeremy Lauzon, Matt Grzelcyk and Karson Kuhlman picked up assists in the win. Rask stopped 24 of 26 shots, continuing to show his dominance in the crease.
Senators Individual Stats
Brady Tkachuk and Colin White were the goal scorers for the struggling Senators and Marcus Hogberg had an .850 GAA with three goals against.
FINAL SCORE: Bruins 3, Red Wings 2
Bruins Record (Includes simulated games): 47-15-14 (107 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: vs. Florida Panthers on Saturday.
Be sure to keep an eye out for our Bruins vs. Panthers simulation which is set to drop on Saturday.
