2024 NHL Playoffs bracket: Stanley Cup Playoffs schedule, start times, TV channels for Round 2

The Boston Bruins are advancing to the second round of the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs after once again defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs in a Game 7. On Saturday night, David Pastrnak scored in overtime to send Boston through to the next round and send Toronto packing.

The Maple Leafs and Bruins played to a 1-1 tie through three periods, and Toronto was one shot away from getting a playoff gorilla off its back. However, it was an all too familiar story for the Maple Leafs as Pastrnak zoomed into the zone, picked up a loose puck and beat Ilya Samsonov for the game-winner. Now, the Bruins will take on the Panthers in the second round.

While the conference semifinals began on Sunday with the New York Rangers taking on the Carolina Hurricanes, the final matchup of the opening round was decided. The Dallas Stars came away with a hard-fought 2-1 win against the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 7. Now the Stars will take on the Colorado Avalanche.

The structure of the playoffs is as follows:

  • The division winner with the most points in each conference will face the second Wild Card team in the first round. The division winner with fewer points in each conference will match up with the top Wild Card team in the first round.
  • Each series will be a best-of-seven format.
  • Home-ice advantage goes to the team with the top seed in the first two rounds of the playoffs. The team with the most points in the regular season has home-ice advantage in the conference finals and Stanley Cup Final.

Below is how you can follow each series in the first round along with updating results and scores from each game. Bookmark this page for the duration of the playoff run to stay up to date with everything on the ice.
