Oh baby The best postseason is officially here.

Sixteen NHL teams compete for the greatest trophy of all sports: the Stanley Cup. The course of the game is slightly different in 2021: The four best teams in each division will meet (1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3 in round 1) and the later division champions will meet in the Stanley Cup semi-finals. The last two standing teams will then meet in the Stanley Cup final.

Everything you need to know about watching NHL playoff games in 2021 is here, including a full TV schedule with start times and channels for each series.
