2021 NHL Playoffs: Stanley Cup playoffs scores, bracket, complete schedule, standings, games, TV channels


Hockey fans know that the NHL’s Stanley Cup Playoffs are one of the best postseasons in sports. With the regular season wrapping up, it’s almost that time again to watch teams battle it out for the Stanley Cup.

This season is different from last year, which was different from others in the past due to the coronavirus pandemic. Due to travel restrictions in Canada, the NHL realigned their divisions, with one including just Canadian teams.

The first two rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs take place within the division. The first place team faces the fourth-place team and the second-place team plays the third-place team. The winners then face off in the second round. The four teams that advance to the semifinals will be re-seeded using regular season point total.
