How to watch Rangers vs. Hurricanes, Canadiens vs. Penguins, 2020 Stanley Cup playoffs – CNET

Published

on

Hockey is probably the last sport you’d think of during the dog days of summer, but in this most unusual year, the NHL is back on the ice in August. Instead of resuming its regular season, which was suspended in March, the NHL is jumping straight to the Stanley Cup playoffs with 24 of its 31 teams.

Similar to the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida, the NHL resumed play in two hub cities. The 12 Eastern Conference teams will play in Toronto, and the 12 Western Conference teams will be in Edmonton, Alberta. The Stanley Cup Finals will also be held in Edmonton.

Here’s what cord-cutters need to know to watch all the Stanley Cup playoff action this summer.

Which teams are in the playoffs?

The top four teams in each conference — the Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Washington Capitals in the East, and the Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, St. Louis Blues and Vegas Golden Knights in the West — will play round-robin games to establish seeding for the next round of the playoffs, while the other 16 teams will pair up and play best-of-five qualifier series. The last seven teams in the frozen standings were cut from the playoffs and can start working on their golf games.

For the qualifier series, check out the matchups in the East and in the West. The eight winners of the qualifier games will then match up with the top eight teams for best-of-seven series in the next round of the playoffs.

How can I watch the Stanley Cup playoffs on TV?

In the US, games will be shown nationally on NBC, NBCSN and the USA Network. The NHL Network will also broadcast seven games from the round-robin and qualifier rounds. In addition, NHL.tv will stream 21 qualifier games live and costs $4.99 for an all-access pass and $3.99 for a single team pass.

If you’re a fan of your local team, you’ll be able to watch most games on your team’s Regional Sports Network (RSN) — a regional Fox Sports or NBC Sports channel in most cases (Fox Sports Midwest for St. Louis Blues games, MSG for Rangers or Islanders fans in the New York area or NBC Sports Washington for Washington Capitals games, for example).

Depending on where you live, one of the major live TV streaming services could carry the local RSN that broadcasts your local team’s games. Not every service carries every RSN or local network such as NBC, however, and some teams aren’t available on any live TV streaming service, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries the network you want in your area. I’ve also included information for NBC, NBCSN, the NHL Network and the USA Network for national hockey broadcasts.
