2020 NHL Playoffs Update
After pausing the 2019-2020 season, the National Hockey League has made the decision to move forward with a plan in hopes of bringing playoff hockey to fans. The proposed plan will begin initial phases of roll out in early July, with qualified teams back on the ice by the end of July.
Due to the unprecedented circumstances, the playoffs are expected to begin with 24 total teams. Eight of the teams, four from each conference, have clinched their spots leaving the remaining 16 to battle it out in a qualifying round. The top eight teams will play a round-robin tournament to determine their seeding moving forward. The first round will be a best of 5 series, with eight teams moving forward to then play against the top seeded teams. The structure of the remaining rounds has yet to be determined by the league, with hopes of fans eventually being in the stands. Check back for updates regarding the NHL playoffs as they come in!

How it Works
From April to June you can catch your team battle down the bracket to hopefully be the team hoisting the cup in the air. Over the years the NHL playoff format has changed several times. The 2014 season restructured the tournament, so it's based on divisions as opposed to conferences. Sixteen teams - eight from the East and eight from the West - face-off in a bracket for the finals. From there they fight for the Division finals, the Conference finals and then the coveted Stanley Cup Final. Each series throughout the playoffs is played as a best-of-seven format.
It seems unfair to pin down a couple of famous moments in NHL playoff history, but there are a couple of plays that stand out regardless of what team you root for. For example, Bobby Orr's iconic overtime goal in 1970 - you know the one. Orr scored on the St. Louis Blues to help the Bruins win their first Stanley Cup in almost 30 years. To celebrate, Orr jumped in the air, a moment that was caught perfectly on camera, and later made into a statue that greets fans outside Boston's TD Garden. The longest game in the history of the Stanley Cup should also get a special nod, as the Oilers and Bruins fought it out in Game 1 of the 1990 finals for 115 minutes and 13 seconds until almost one thirty in the morning. Now that takes some serious strength. That passion is shared by teams as they advance shot after shot. With the tournament lasting a couple of months, every game, and every round means more to the players. They've come this far, and they won't be beat.
Who knows when players will sporadically dive into the air, or when there will be another game that lasts into the morning. Just these two moments prove that anything can happen in the NHL playoffs. The good news? Cheap tickets are easy to come by, so you can be there the next time history is made. Don't miss out on another shot, penalty or fight and pick up some cheap NHL playoff tickets today!
