NHL 2020 playoffs: Stanley Cup qualification scores, schedule, standings, matches, TV channels, time | Instant News


After a four month break into the NHL season after the coronavirus pandemic closed all sports around the world, hockey was officially back. The 24-team postseason starts on Saturday because the Stanley Cup Playoff will have the biggest competitor group in league history.

Twelve teams from each conference will play in an arena without spectators in two central Canadian cities. One in Toronto, where the Eastern Conference will be held, and the other in Edmonton, where the Western Conference match will take place. The top four teams from each conference have qualified for round 16, meaning the remaining 16 will compete in the best round of the five Stanley Cup Qualifying rounds to get last place – with a regular season record determining seeding.

Below you will find a schedule for that qualification, which will be updated during the postseason. Stay with CBS Sports for coverage and analysis of your Stanley Cup playoffs, and check CBS Sports HQ for daily highlights and distractions.
