A new feature for the postseason here at the RLD will be NHL09 simulations. Pretty frequently I’ll simulate a game for the night on EA Sports’ awesome hockey video game. The rosters are updated, injured players are out of the lineup, and the players’ overalls are as close to real life as possible.
Today, I let the computer play out Game 5 of Devils-‘Canes…
