The NHL Conferences and the Stanley Cup

The National Hockey League consists of two conferences: Eastern and Western. The two conferences both feature two divisions. The Metropolitan and Atlantic belong to the Eastern Conference, while the Western Conference has the Central and Pacific Divisions.

The top three from each division qualify automatically for the Stanley Cup playoffs, along with two wild card teams. The wildcard entries are the two teams with the highest points after the top three in their respective division.

The top seed from each conference meets the lower-seeded wildcard team, and the leader of the opposite division within their conference faces the higher-seeded wildcard team in the playoffs.

The 2nd and 3rd seeds from each division play each other in the first round of the playoffs. After the first-round games, the highest remaining seed in the conference draws the lowest remaining seed.
