NHL playoff schedule 2020: Updated bracket, dates, times, TV channels for every Round 2 series

Jackie Spiegel

After a wild, heart-thumping first round, the Stanley Cup playoffs continue with the conference semifinals beginning Aug. 22.

Eight teams remain to battle it out for the 2020 Stanley Cup. There are perennial contenders such as the Boston Bruins, Tampa Bay Lightning, Vegas Golden Knights and Dallas Stars. The New York Islanders continue to be a thorn in the side of many top clubs as Barry Trotz looks for his second Cup in three years, and the Colorado Avalanche are making back-to-back second-round appearances.

In the Eastern Conference, it has been eight years since the top-seeded Philadelphia Flyers advanced past the first two weeks of the playoffs; in the Western Conference, it has been nine years for the Vancouver Canucks. Both clubs will be champing at the bit to break through one more round.

Below is everything you’ll need to know about watching the 2020 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs second round, including matchups and series-by-series TV schedules.
