2021 First Round series, TV info


The 16 Stanley Cup playoff teams are set, and while we’re still waiting to see how the West Division matchups shake out, we know what the NHL First Round playoff schedule will look like.

For this season only, the NHL realigned with four divisions. Teams played only against opponents from their division during the 56-game regular season. The playoff format is simple: The top seed in each division faces the fourth seed, while the second faces the third in the First Round. The winners face off in the Second Round.

Once we reach the Stanley Cup Semifinals, the four remaining playoff teams will be re-seeded based on their regular season point totals.
