2020 NHL Playoffs bracket: Stanley Cup Playoffs results, games, times, schedule, TV channel, standings

Hockey is back in full swing, following a four-month pause to the NHL season due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 24-team original postseason, which included a round-robin and elimination qualifying round, has been narrowed down to 16 teams and the seeding has been determined. 

The conference semifinals are winding down. Three series have ended, while the final one left — Islanders vs. Flyers — will be decided in a Game 7 on Saturday. The teams are playing in spectator-less arenas in two Canadian hub cities. One is in Toronto, where the Eastern Conference games will be held, and the other is in Edmonton, where the Western Conference games will take place.

Below you’ll find the bracket of the entire playoffs and the schedule for the Conference Semifinal games. Results will be updated as the postseason progresses. Stay with CBS Sports for your Stanley Cup playoff coverage and analysis, and check out CBS Sports HQ for daily highlights and breakdowns.
