NHL 11 Demo Available Now

For those of you in the gaming persuasion (like I am), EA released their NHL 11 demo yesterday (8/17, Tuesday). If you've liked the past entries, I would SERIOUSLY give this a shot. Great time to release this now, as it lets you get a bit of a hockey fix in before the good stuff starts soon.

The demo puts you in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, Philadelphia @ Chicago, Game 7, tied 2-2 in the 3rd period. It keeps going until someone wins.

In my case, I took Chicago (surprise!). 3rd period ended, still tied up. 1st overtime passed by, still no score.

2nd overtime, 1 minute to go. Patrick Kane bursts out on the right side, flies up and around TPCP (just for LTD. :D ) and rushes in on Michael Leighton. Kane gets hooked by Pronger as he goes in, and fires a shot right at Leighton's shoulder...

...but wait...Penalty Shot! The crowd goes nuts! Kane lines up, moves in, dekes from left to right, then buries a backhander up and over Leighton to win the game and the Cup! Pandemonium ensues.

 

I admit...I kinda yelled out when I scored. Hunter did too. :) 

 

New features for this year include broken sticks, the ability to play without a stick, disallowed goals, true physics-based checks, and a LOT more. I HIGHLY suggest you try this out if you have a PS3 or an Xbox 360.
