The Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-0 in the final game of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Here’s how the bracket lines up.
Reminder: the NHL has adopted a “Seeding Format” for this year’s postseason meaning this bracket will change per round.
In each succeeding round of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the highest remaining seed in each conference will face the lowest remaining seed, the second-highest remaining seed in each conference will face the second-lowest remaining seed, etc.
All series from here on out will be best-of-seven.
Let the games begin!
