How Do the NHL Playoffs Work?

The top three teams from each division have an automatic spot in the postseason. This makes up the first 12 teams admitted to the playoffs. The last four spots, called the wild card teams, are given to the top two teams with the best records in each conference—regardless of division.

There are four rounds in the NHL Playoffs: First Round, Second Round, Conference Finals, and Stanley Cup Finals. Every round is a best-of-seven series in a 2–2–1–1–1 format.

  • First Round: Each division winner plays one of the wild card teams. The teams that finished second and third in each division will play each other.
  • Second Round: The winners of the First Round within each conference will play each other.
  • Conference Finals: The two remaining teams in each conference will face off. The home-ice advantage goes to the team with the better regular-season record.
  • Stanley Cup Final: The two remaining teams (the winners of each conference) play in a best-of-seven series.
