EA Sports carried out their NHL 17 Stanley Cup Playoffs Sim recently, and it ended with the Nashville Predators defeating the Montreal Canadiens in Game 7, thanks to a third period goal by Viktor Arvidsson.

The simulation also saw Filip Forsberg as playoff MVP, the Toronto Maple Leafs losing in seven games to the Washington Capitals in the first round, the Edmonton Oilers losing in six games in the Western Conference Finals, and the Columbus Blue Jackets beating the Pittsburgh Penguins in seven games in the first round.

You can see their full series results in the above image.

Last year, NHL 16 predicted the Washington Capitals as the Stanley Cup winner, but they lost in the second round to the Penguins, who went on to win the Cup.

Who do you think will win the Stanley Cup this year?
