NHL 11 suffered its first prognostication error last night, predicting Detroit would beat the Sharks in seven games rather than lose in seven. Still, 11 for 12 ain't bad so far during these 2011 NHL Playoffs.
The simulation has the Conference Finals both going six games, with Boston and Vancouver both winning out in the end. This simulation also coincides with an ongoing contest that is being run by EA where all of you have a chance to partake in a bracket challenge and potentially win two tickets to the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa. Of course, if you're just getting involved now you really have no shot at the grand prize, but hey, you can still win the prizes that are given away at the conclusion of each round of playoffs.
The Conference Finals begin Saturday night with Boston and Tampa leading things off before Vancouver and San Jose meet on Sunday.
