How we did it: With permission from EA Sports, Boston.com video game junkie Chris Forsberg set up a simulation between the Boston Bruins and Carolina Hurricanes on the xBox 360 console. The latest rosters were downloaded from EA Sports' servers and all pertinent changes were made to each team's roster (utilizing the real starting line and defense combinations from Game 6 of the series).
The xBox 360 version allows a computer vs. computer option, so a human player did not control a team at any time. Only one single simulation was attempted and all footage was recorded for inclusion online. Additional simulations could produce different results.
