2020-21 NHL Season Notes
The National Hockey League has made adjustments for the 2020-21 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The 2020-21 NHL season will begin January 13.
  • The divisions have been temporarily realigned to limit travel, and keep the Canadian teams together as travel restrictions still apply between the United States and Canada
  • Teams will play all games within their division
  • Teams will play 56 games, instead of the usual 82

Four teams from each division qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs

  • The top four teams from each division will play in an intradivisional first two rounds - #1 vs. #4, #2 vs #3 for the first round, with the winners of each series playing each other the second round
  • The four divisional winners will be reseeded by their regular season points totals, and will play #1 vs. #4, #2 vs #3 in the Semifinal round
  • The two semifinal winners will play in the Stanley Cup Finals

Clinched playoff berth
Still alive for playoffs
Eliminated from the playoffs

Tie for the division, wildcard, or seeding

  1. The greater number of games won (not including games won in a shootout)
  2. 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.
  3. Goal differential
