NEWARK, N.J. - EA Sports predicts the Los Angeles Kings will defeat the New Jersey Devils in six games to win the Stanley Cup,.

That's the word from the NHL 12 simulation engine, the video game developer said.

In the simulation, Kings goalie Jonathan Quick continued his stellar post-season play. The 26-year-old records a shutout and does not allow more than two goals in a game against the Devils en route to collecting the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

The simulation has Los Angeles winning Game 1 by a 4-2 score before losing the next two 2-0 and 2-1. The Kings close it out with 2-0, 3-2 and 3-1 wins.

Kings defenceman Drew Doughty scores the winning goal in the final game.
