Welcome everyone! This thread is going to be focusing on discussion of the NHL. Originally made solely for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, I have now decided to turn it into a general NHL thread! So, the show goes on!!

What is the NHL?
The NHL stands for the National Hockey League. It is the top-tier league in the United States and Canada, with 24 teams playing in the former and 7 in the latter.
The NHL is divided into 2 conferences, each conference being composed of two divisions. 16 teams qualify for the playoffs: the 3 best teams of each division, along with 2 wild-cards per conference (the 2 best teams that weren't in the top 3).
The Stanley Cup playoffs is a four-round series, with each series being a best-of-seven. The first two rounds are divisional, the third round is between the 2 remaining teams in each conference, with the Finals being between the Western Conference and Eastern Conference champions.
