The EA Sports NHL curse appears to have struck the Pittsburgh Penguins, who missed the playoffs despite being predicted as Stanley Cup winners. Will the curse impact other teams in the simulation?

At the start of every NHL season, EA Sports simulates the upcoming season using their latest video game to predict which team will hoist the Stanley Cup. This year, their simulation predicted the Pittsburgh Penguins would emerge victorious after defeating the Colorado Avalanche, Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, and Carolina Hurricanes in the playoffs. However, it seems the EA Sports NHL curse has struck the Penguins, as they missed the playoffs entirely this season.

Despite having a talented roster and creating numerous scoring opportunities, the Penguins struggled to find the back of the net throughout the season. This inability to capitalize on their chances ultimately led to their downfall, ending their 16-season playoff streak and leaving fans disappointed. With the simulation’s prediction now proven false, the question arises whether the EA Sports NHL curse played a role in the Penguins’ downfall.

Interestingly, the simulation also predicted that the Toronto Maple Leafs would advance past the first round of the playoffs. With the Leafs’ notorious history of first-round exits, fans will be eagerly watching to see if the EA Sports NHL curse strikes them as well.

While the accuracy of video game simulations can be hit or miss, the Penguins’ surprising collapse this season following the EA Sports NHL prediction has fans questioning the curse’s impact on the team’s performance. This is not the first time that the EA Sports NHL playoff simulation has cursed a team, and it seems like it certainly won’t be the last.
