EA Sports will release NHL ’14 to the world on September 10th. The 23rd game in the series, this year’s edition features NHL ’94 Anniversary mode– a callback to the seminal, twenty-year-old game featuring current rosters and downgraded graphics. We’re talking blue ice, 8-bit organ music, and those stick-over-head goal celebrations. It’s all back.
EA Sports released a teaser video, of which 17 of 74 seconds feature Caps players doing stuff. It’s got Alex Ovechkin putting a wrister in the right-hand corner of the net (22-second mark). Totally believable.
It’s got John Erskine showing off his hip-checking skillz (30 seconds). That could happen maybe.
And it’s got Mike Green beating the snot out of Jamie Benn in the face with a flurry of crunchy-sounding right-handed punches (47-second mark). Whaaaaaaaaa.
