The NHL have concluded it’s regular season and we are headed for the Playoffs!

NHL 2016/17 Regular Season Standings

NHL Playoffs 2016/17 – Match Dates

Finally, the playoffs is here! Now, obviously the seeding is a little bit differently because of the within division match-ups in the first two rounds. So we wanted to show how both of them looked like. If one look at the regular season standings, you would see how it is with the wild card setup, and then below we have put in the actual placement of the teams within the conference.

The winners of each first round will face the winner of each of the other match-up within the same division. Following the setup below, the two winners of the Metropolitan division will face-off against each other before that winner meets the winner of the Atlantic division. The winner of that again, play in the Stanley Cup Final vs. the winner of the Western Conference.
