NHL Playoff Schedule
The NHL seeds teams from 1 through 8 in each conference. The first round which is also known as the conference quarterfinals has 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6 and 4 vs. 5. In the second round which is known as the conference semifinals, the teams are re-seeded. This is unlike the NBA playoffs where the 1 vs. 8 winner takes on the 4 vs. 5 winner. The next round is the Conference Finals and the final round is the Stanley Cup Finals where the conference winners player each other. All of the playoffs are best-of-seven game series.
