2020 NHL Playoffs bracket: Stanley Cup Playoffs results, schedule, games, standings, times, TV channels

Hockey is back in full swing, following a four-month pause to the NHL season due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 24-team original postseason, which included a round-robin and elimination qualifying round, has been narrowed down to 16 teams and the seeding has been determined. 

The conference semifinals are set with the top two teams in the East during the regular season, Tampa Bay and Boston, squaring off, and out west, the defending champion Blues are out, and the elite and talented youth in Vancouver and Colorado are still on display in the bubble in Edmonton.

The remaining teams are playing in spectator-less arenas in two Canadian hub cities. One is in Toronto, where the Eastern Conference games will be held, and the other is in Edmonton, where the Western Conference games will take place.

Below you’ll find the a bracket of the entire playoffs and the schedule for the Conference Semifinal games. Results will be updated as the postseason progresses.
