Hockey is back in full swing, following a four-month pause to the NHL season due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 24-team original postseason, which included a round-robin and elimination qualifying round, has been narrowed down to 16 teams and the seeding has been determined. 

The Conference finals are set with the Lightning and Islanders facing off in the East and the Golden Knights taking on the Stars in the West. The teams stared playing in spectator-less arenas in two Canadian hub cities — Toronto and Edmonton. Now, all games in the Conference Finals and Stanley Cup Finals will take place in Edmonton.

Below you’ll find the bracket of the entire playoffs and the schedule for the Conference Finals. Results will be updated as the postseason progresses. Stay with CBS Sports for your Stanley Cup playoff coverage and analysis, and check out CBS Sports HQ for daily highlights and breakdowns.
