NHL playoff games today: Full TV schedule to watch 2021 Stanley Cup playoff games

Oh, baby! The best postseason is officially here.

Sixteen NHL teams will battle it out for the greatest trophy in all of sports: the Stanley Cup. How it’ll all play out is a little different in 2021: the four best teams in each division will face each other (1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3 in Round 1) and the eventual division champs will meet in the Stanley Cup semifinals. The last two teams standing will then go head-to-head in the Stanley Cup Final.

Here’s everything to know about watching NHL playoff games in 2021, including a complete TV schedule with start times and channels for every series.
