There might not be real NHL games being played right now, but millions of hockey fans around the world are still getting their slap-shot fix thanks to EA Sports. "NHL 13" features an all new skating system that really helps separate the elite players in the game from the rest of the pack, capturing a superstar's acceleration and stick skills like never before. Checks into the glass, first-person fighting and a new GM Connected careers mode round out the rest of the features that will keep you coming back to the ice, even if the real players are sitting this one out.
