3. Boston Bruins
The Boston Bruins were the hottest and best team in the NHL before the pause happened due to the Coronavirus pandemic. They were so hot that they won the president trophy by being the only team in the NHL to hit the century mark in points. We can’t really say how many other teams would have hit 100 points since there were still a handful of games left, but under the circumstances, the Boston Bruins won the Presidents Trophy fair and square. If the season wasn’t put on hold and things were to have continued the way that they did, the Boston Bruins might have taken that moment straight into the playoffs for their first Stanley Cup Championship since 2011.
The Boston Bruins are going to be a tough team to play against in NHL 21. Instead of playing against them, why not play as them? The Boston Bruins are another team that has 4 players that have an overall of 90 and above. They have the firepower to put pucks in the back of the net and they have the goaltending similar to a brick wall. It is going to be very hard for opponents to score against the goaltending of the Bruins and it will be very hard for the goaltending of the opposition to stop the laser beam of shots from Boston’s offense. Patrice Bergeron is also one of the best face-off centers in the league if not the best and face-offs will be a huge part of NHL 21 just like any other NHL video game.
The virtual video game fans are going to blow the roof off of TD Garden after each goal that will constantly annoy your opponents if you happen to be the home team. If you happen to be the away team, well that doesn’t matter much either because video game or not Boston is going to do what Boston does best and that is score goals and win games.
