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

The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs certainly has gotten off to a thrilling start. The action continued on Thursday with two contests that ended up being quite close.

The New York Rangers led the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 in the late stages of the third period before Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov tied the game with just 1:36 left in regulation. For the second consecutive game, the two teams were headed to overtime. Just 1:43 into the overtime period, Rangers star Artemi Panarin found the back of the net to give New York a 3-0 lead in the series.

Meanwhile, the Dallas Stars came out of the gate strong as they displayed their offensive firepower. The Stars scored three second-period goals to take a 4-0 lead into the third period. However, the Avalanche didn’t lay down as they scored three goals heading into the final three minutes of the contest. Unlike Game 1, the comeback did fall just short this time around, and the Stars won Game 2 by a 5-3 decision.

On Friday, home ice advantage shifts with the Boston Bruins set to host the Florida Panthers in Game 3 of their series. On the other hand, the Vancouver Canucks will look to take a 2-0 series lead against the Edmonton Oilers in Game 2.

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.
