Playoff Format (New for 2013-14)The Stanley Cup Playoffs consists of 16 teams, eight from each conference. The top three teams in each division make up the first 12 teams in the playoffs. The remaining four spots are filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference -- regardless of division -- based on regular-season points. It is possible for one division to send five teams to the postseason while the other sends three.
The seeding of the wild-card teams within each divisional playoff is determined by regular-season points. The division winner with the most points in the conference is matched against the wild-card team with the fewest points; the division winner with the second-most points in the conference plays the wild-card team with the second-fewest points. The teams finishing second and third in each division play in the first round of the playoffs. The winners of each series play for berths in the conference championship series. The winners of the conference championships advance to the Stanley Cup Final.
Home-ice advantage for the Stanley Cup Finals is determined by points.
All series are best-of-seven.
Tie Breaking ProcedureIf two or more clubs are tied in points during the regular season, the standing of the clubs is determined in the following order:
- The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).
- The greater number of games won, excluding games won in the Shootout.
- The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
- The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.
