Enter Second City Hockey’s 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs Bracket Challenge

Fill out your bracket!

The Stanley Cup Playoffs officially start Tuesday.

The Blackhawks are in the playoffs for the first time since 2017, but they’ll have a tough matchup against a deep Golden Knights team that went 3-0 during round-robin play to earn the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. Chicago upset the No. 5 Oilers in four games during the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, and the Canadiens also pulled off a 12-5 upset in the Eastern Conference by eliminating the Penguins in four games.

Both the Blues and Bruins were the No. 1 seeds in their respective conferences when the NHL was paused March 12 due to health concerns surrounding the coronavirus. But they both went 0-3 in the round robin against the other top four teams in their conference.

The bracket will be re-seeded after the first and second rounds.

SCH has set up its own pool with the NHL’s bracket challenge. If you decide to join, you will have a chance to go head-to-head with SCH staff members and fellow SCH readers. All you need is an NHL.com account to sign up.
