NHL Playoffs 2022: Schedule, where to stream, scores, highlights, bracket

The Stanley Cup Playoffs are one of the most exciting postseason formats in sports. For the first time in three years, every team played a full 82-game regular season schedule without an interruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic. The divisions were completely back to normal with teams being permitted to cross the border and play in Canada and vice versa.

The Florida Panthers captured the President’s Trophy as the team with the most points around the league. Equipped with one of the deepest rosters in the NHL, the Panthers finished with a 58-18-6 record and a grand total of 122 points when the regular season dust settled.

The structure of the playoffs is as follows:

  • The playoff format has the team with the most points taking on the second Wild Card team in the opening round in each conference. The division winner with the second-most points will face off with the top Wild Card team.
  • Each series will be in a best-of-seven format
  • The home ice advantage goes to the team with the top seed in the opening two rounds of the playoffs. The team with the most regular season points has home ice in the conference finals and Stanley Cup Finals.
