EA Sports has run its annual simulation of the hockey season using its NHL '14 video game, and the St. Louis Blues emerged as the Stanley Cup champions.

It also calls for a Bruins-Penguins rematch in the Eastern Conference Finals, although this time it's the Penguins who will advance, EA Sports says. The Bruins defeated the Penguins 4-0 in last season's conference finals.

The Blackhawks will lose to the Blues in the Western Conference Finals, the simulator says.

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask gets the nod as the Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL's best goalie. The simulation resulted in Rask picking up 41 wins.

Other predicted awards:

Conn Smythe Trophy: Alex Pietrangelo (STL)
Hart Memorial Trophy: Sidney Crosby (PIT)
Art Ross Trophy: Sidney Crosby (PIT)
James Norris Memorial Trophy: Duncan Keith (CHI)
Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy: Steven Stamkos (TBL)
Vezina Trophy: Tuukka Rask (BOS)
Frank J. Selke Trophy: Jonathan Toews (CHI)
Lady Byng Memorial Trophy: Pavel Datsyuk (DET)
Calder Memorial Trophy: Jonathan Drouin (TBL)
Ted Lindsay: Sidney Crosby(PIT)
