The 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs of the National Hockey League (NHL) began on April 12, 2017 and concluded on June 11, 2017, with the Pittsburgh Penguins defeating the Nashville Predators four games to two in the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals.

The Washington Capitals made the playoffs as the Presidents' Trophy winners for the second consecutive year with the most points (i.e. best record) during the regular season. The Detroit Red Wings failed to make the playoffs for the first time since the 1989–90 season, ending the NHL's longest active playoff streak at 25 consecutive seasons; the streak was also tied for the third-longest streak in NHL history.[1] The longest active playoff streak moved to the Pittsburgh Penguins with eleven consecutive appearances.[2] The Edmonton Oilers made the playoffs for the first time since 2006, ending a record-tying playoff drought for a team with ten years missed (the Florida Panthers also missed the playoffs between 2001 and 2011 inclusively).[3] For the first time since 2006, both Alberta teams, the Oilers and the Calgary Flames, qualified for the postseason in the same year. For the first time since 2013, and the fourth time since 2002, all three Eastern Canadian teams (Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, and Toronto Maple Leafs) qualified for the playoffs. In all, five Canadian-based teams made the playoffs, matching 2015, after a season in which none of the seven teams in Canada contended.

The first round saw eighteen overtime games, eclipsing the previous record of seventeen overtime games in the first round set in 2013.[4][5] There were 27 total overtime games in these playoffs, one short of the record set in 1993. It was also the first time since 2001 that no first round series went the full seven games.

For the eighth season in a row (and the twelfth time in the last fourteen seasons), a California-based team was in the Western Conference Final.[6]

Playoff seeds[edit]

This is the fourth year in which the top three teams in each division make the playoffs, along with two wild cards in each conference (for a total of eight playoff teams from each conference).

The following teams qualified for the playoffs:[7]

Eastern Conference[edit]

Atlantic Division[edit]

  1. Montreal Canadiens, Atlantic Division champions – 103 points
  2. Ottawa Senators – 98 points
  3. Boston Bruins – 95 points (42 ROWs)

Metropolitan Division[edit]

  1. Washington Capitals, Metropolitan Division champions, Eastern Conference regular season champions, Presidents' Trophy winners – 118 points
  2. Pittsburgh Penguins – 111 points
  3. Columbus Blue Jackets – 108 points

Wild Cards[edit]

  1. New York Rangers – 102 points
  2. Toronto Maple Leafs – 95 points (39 ROWs)

Western Conference[edit]

Central Division[edit]

  1. Chicago Blackhawks, Central Division champions, Western Conference regular season champions – 109 points
  2. Minnesota Wild – 106 points
  3. St. Louis Blues – 99 points

Pacific Division[edit]

  1. Anaheim Ducks, Pacific Division champions – 105 points
  2. Edmonton Oilers – 103 points
  3. San Jose Sharks – 99 points

Wild Cards[edit]

  1. Calgary Flames – 94 points (41 ROWs)
  2. Nashville Predators – 94 points (39 ROWs)

Playoff bracket[edit]

In each round, teams compete in a best-of-seven series following a 2–2–1–1–1 format (scores in the bracket indicate the number of games won in each best-of-seven series). The team with home ice advantage plays at home for games one and two (and games five and seven, if necessary), and the other team is at home for games three and four (and game six, if necessary). The top three teams in each division make the playoffs, along with two wild cards in each conference, for a total of eight teams from each conference.

In the First Round, the lower seeded wild card in the conference plays against the division winner with the best record while the other wild card plays against the other division winner, and both wild cards are de facto #4 seeds. The other series match the second and third place teams from the divisions. In the first two rounds, home ice advantage is awarded to the team with the better seed; in the last two rounds, it is awarded to the team that had the better regular season record.

First round[edit]

Eastern Conference First Round[edit]

(A1) Montreal Canadiens vs. (WC1) New York Rangers[edit]

The Montreal Canadiens finished first in the Atlantic Division earning 103 points. The New York Rangers finished as the Eastern Conference's first wild-card, earning 102 points. This was the sixteenth playoff meeting between these two teams with New York winning eight of the fifteen previous series. They last met in the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals, which New York won in six games. Montreal won all three games in this year's regular season series.

The Rangers eliminated the Canadiens in six games. In the first game of the series, Tanner Glass and Michael Grabner scored the only goals of the games as the Rangers won the game 2–0 on Henrik Lundqvist's 31-save shutout.[8] In Game 2, the Canadiens tied the game with 18 seconds left, then in overtime, Alexander Radulov pushed it past the Rangers' goaltender to give Montreal a 4–3 victory.[9] Radulov continued his scoring into Game 3, getting a goal and an assist to help the Canadiens achieve a 3–1 victory.[10] The Rangers ended a six-game home-losing streak after Game 4 winning 2–1 over the Canadiens to tie the series 2–2.[11] Mika Zibanejad got the overtime-winner for the Rangers in Game 5 after Chris Kreider deflected a pass off of Canadiens defenceman Alexei Emelin, landing towards the forward who put it past goaltender Carey Price in a 3–2 win.[12] Mats Zuccarello scored twice in Game 6 as the Rangers eliminated the Canadiens in a 3–1 victory to advance to the second round.


New York won series 4–2


(A2) Ottawa Senators vs. (A3) Boston Bruins[edit]

The Ottawa Senators finished second in the Atlantic Division, earning 98 points. The Boston Bruins earned 95 points in the regular season to finish third in the Atlantic. This was the first playoff meeting between the contemporary Ottawa franchise and Boston, and the first Boston-Ottawa series since the 1927 Stanley Cup Finals. Ottawa won all four games in this year's regular season series.

The Senators eliminated the Bruins in six games. In Game 1, the Senators gained a 1–0 lead into the third on Bobby Ryan's goal in the second period, however, the Bruins scored twice in the final period with Brad Marchand having the final tally 2:33 before the game ended 2–1 for Boston.[13] In Game 2, Ottawa came back from a two-goal deficit in the third period and won via Dion Phaneuf whose goal in overtime helped tie the series 1–1 after a 4–3 conquest.[14] In Game 3, Ottawa had a three-goal lead with Mike Hoffman scoring twice, but the Bruins came back with three goals in the third period. In overtime, Bruins forward Riley Nash took a roughing penalty and on the ensuing power play, Bobby Ryan tipped in a pass from Kyle Turris ending the game 4–3 for the Senators.[15] Bobby Ryan scored the only goal in Game 4 5:49 into the third period, allowing the Senators to achieve a 3–1 series lead.[16] Boston came back from an early 2–0 deficit in Game 5 and the game would go to overtime. In double-overtime, Bruins rookie Sean Kuraly scored his second goal of the game, completing the comeback in a 3–2 feat.[17] In Game 6, Clarke MacArthur scored the series-winning goal on the power play in overtime for Ottawa to advance to the second round.[18]


Ottawa won series 4–2


(M1) Washington Capitals vs. (WC2) Toronto Maple Leafs[edit]

The Washington Capitals earned the Presidents' Trophy for the second consecutive year as the NHL's best regular season team this time with 118 points. The Toronto Maple Leafs finished as the Eastern Conference's second wild-card, earning 95 points. This was the first playoff meeting between these two teams. Washington won two of the three games in this year's regular season series.

This became only the third playoff series in NHL history in which five games were decided in overtime (the first being the 1951 Stanley Cup Finals between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens and the second occurring in the 2012 Western Conference Quarterfinals between the Phoenix Coyotes and the Chicago Blackhawks).

The Capitals defeated the Maple Leafs in six games. Although Toronto had a two-goal lead in the first ten minutes of Game 1, Washington scored two goals, both from Justin Williams, and won the game 3–2 in overtime from Tom Wilson's goal.[19] In Game 2, rookie Kasperi Kapanen scored twice including the game-winner in double-overtime leading the Maple Leafs to a 4–3 victory.[20] Washington took two two-goal leads in Game 3; the first pick in the 2016 NHL Draft, Auston Matthews, helped soften the lead with his first playoff goal, but after the Capitals got a 3–1 lead, the Maple Leafs scored twice to tie the game. Then in overtime, Tyler Bozak sent his shot past the Capitals' goaltender to give the Leafs a 2–1 series lead.[21] Game 4 was the only game of the series not to go into overtime; Tom Wilson and T. J. Oshie both scored two goals and Oshie's second goal proved to be the game-winner in a 5–4 victory after an attempted comeback by Toronto was thwarted.[22] Game 5 featured the fourth overtime game of this series with Justin Williams scoring for Capitals in a 2–1, taking a 3–2 series lead in the process.[23] In Game 6, the game went to overtime for the fifth time this series and at 6:31 of the first overtime period Marcus Johansson scored his second goal for the Capitals in a 2–1 victory and another trip to the second round.[24]


Washington won series 4–2


(M2) Pittsburgh Penguins vs. (M3) Columbus Blue Jackets[edit]

The Pittsburgh Penguins finished second in the Metropolitan Division earning 111 points. The Columbus Blue Jackets earned 108 points to finish third in the Metropolitan. This was the second playoff meeting between these teams; they last met in the 2014 Eastern Conference First Round, which Pittsburgh won in six games. The teams split this year's four-game regular season series.

The Penguins defeated the Blue Jackets in five games. Before Game 1 began, Matt Murray, the starting goaltender for the Penguins, injured himself during warm-ups forcing Marc-Andre Fleury, who had been demoted to the backup for the season, to start the game; his team would win the game 3–1, making 31 saves in the process.[25] Sidney Crosby got a goal and two assists in Game 2 as the Penguins defeated the Blue Jackets 4–1 and took a 2–0 series lead.[26] In Game 3, Jake Guentzel scored a hat-trick, his third being the overtime-winner as the Penguins came back from a two-goal deficit and defeated the Blue Jackets 5–4 and take a 3–0 series lead.[27] Columbus avoided a sweep in Game 4, scoring with five different players in a 5–4 victory; this was also the franchise's first playoff win in regulation.[28] In Game 5, Bryan Rust scored twice, including the series-winner, and Fleury made 49 saves in a 5–2 win for the Penguins to advance to the second round.[29]


Pittsburgh won series 4–1


Western Conference First Round[edit]

(C1) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (WC2) Nashville Predators[edit]

The Chicago Blackhawks finished first in the Central Division earning 109 points. The Nashville Predators finished as the Western Conference's second wild-card, earning 94 points. This was the third playoff meeting between these teams with Chicago winning both previous series. They last met in the 2015 Western Conference First Round, which Chicago won in six games. Chicago won four of the five games in this year's regular season series.

The Predators defeated the Blackhawks in a four-game sweep; this was the first time in NHL playoff history that an eighth-seeded team swept a playoff series against the top seed in their conference. Viktor Arvidsson scored the only goal in Game 1 as the Predators shut out the Blackhawks, stopping all 29 shots they faced.[30] The Blackhawks remained scoreless after Game 2, instead being outscored 5–0 with Pekka Rinne not only stopping all 30 shots he faced, but also providing two assists.[31] Chicago finally scored a goal in Game 3 and they maintained a two-goal lead throughout the second period, but in the third period, Filip Forsberg scored twice for Nashville to tie the game and send it to overtime. In overtime, Nashville forward Kevin Fiala skated around Chicago goalie Corey Crawford and put the puck past the Chicago netminder to complete the comeback in a 3–2 victory giving them their first 3–0 series lead.[32] In Game 4, Roman Josi scored twice in a 4–1 victory and Rinne made 30 saves for the Predators, who swept a playoff opponent for the first time in franchise history.[33]


Nashville won series 4–0


(C2) Minnesota Wild vs. (C3) St. Louis Blues[edit]

The Minnesota Wild finished second in the Central Division earning 106 points. The St. Louis Blues earned 99 points to finish third in the Central. This was the second playoff meeting between these teams; their only previous meeting was the 2015 Western Conference First Round, which Minnesota won in six games. St. Louis won three of the five games in this year's regular season series.

The Blues defeated the Wild in five games. St. Louis won the first game of the series 2–1 17:48 into overtime from Joel Edmundson's wrist shot after the Wild tied the game in the final minute of the game, Jake Allen made 51 saves in the process.[34] In Game 2, Jaden Schwartz scored the game-winner with 2:27 left in the third period, giving the Blues another 2–1 victory over the Wild.[35] The Wild continued to score only one goal in each game this series, losing the game nevertheless, this time 3–1 as Allen made 40 saves and the Blues took a 3–0 series lead.[36] Devan Dubnyk kept the Wild alive in the series, stopping all 28 shots he faced in a 2–0 victory in Game 4.[37] In Game 5, the Blues took a 3–1 lead in the third period only to see the Wild tie it up in the last ten minutes. However, in overtime, Magnus Paajarvi ended the game for St. Louis, defeating the Wild 4–3 to advance to the second round.[38]


St. Louis won series 4–1


(P1) Anaheim Ducks vs. (WC1) Calgary Flames[edit]

The Anaheim Ducks finished first in the Pacific Division for the fifth consecutive year, this time earning 105 points. The Calgary Flames finished as the Western Conference's first wild-card, earning 94 points. This was the third playoff meeting between these teams with Anaheim winning both previous series. They last met in the 2015 Western Conference Second Round which Anaheim won in five games. Anaheim won four of the five games in this year's regular season series. Anaheim has also won 25 straight regular season home games against Calgary.

The Ducks defeated the Flames in a four-game sweep. In Game 1, both Ryan Getzlaf and Jakob Silfverberg had a goal and an assist, the latter of whom had the game-winning goal in a 3–2 victory for the Ducks.[39] Anaheim continued their home-dominance over Calgary defeating the Flames 3–2 with a goal and an assist by Getzlaf again.[40] The Flames had a lead of 4–1 in Game 3, forcing Ducks goaltender John Gibson to be replaced by Jonathan Bernier. The Ducks came back in this game, scoring three times, in what would become the fourth overtime game of this night. Corey Perry then threw the puck towards the net and it bounced off both Calgary goaltender Brian Elliott and defenceman Michael Stone and into the net, to give the Ducks a 3–0 series lead.[41] In Game 4, Gibson stopped 36 shots by the Flames, but allowed only one goal as the Ducks ended the series with a 3–1 win.[42]


Anaheim won series 4–0


(P2) Edmonton Oilers vs. (P3) San Jose Sharks[edit]

The Edmonton Oilers finished second in the Pacific Division with 103 points. The San Jose Sharks earned 99 points in the regular season to finish third in the Pacific. Edmonton started a playoff series at home for the first time since the 1991 Campbell Conference Finals. This was the second playoff meeting between these teams; their only previous series was the 2006 Western Conference Semifinals, which Edmonton won in six games. Edmonton won three of the five games in this year's regular season series.

The Oilers defeated the Sharks in six games. In Edmonton's first playoff game since 2006, the Oilers took a 2–0 lead in the first period, but the Sharks scored three goals over the second, third, and first overtime period winning the game 3–2 from Melker Karlsson's goal.[43] The Oilers scored two shorthanded goals in Game 2 as they blanked San Jose 2–0.[44] The shutout streak continued in Game 3, as Zack Kassian scored the only goal for the Oilers and Cam Talbot stopped 23 shots.[45] Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski scored two goals each and Martin Jones stopped all 23 shots as the Sharks blanked the Oilers 7–0 in Game 4 to tie the series at two.[46] The Sharks gained a 3–1 lead over the Oilers in Game 5, but both Mark Letestu and Oscar Klefbom scored to tie the game and send it to overtime. David Desharnais would end it at 18:15 of overtime to give the Oilers a 4–3 triumph and a 3–2 series lead.[47] In Game 6, the Oilers scored twice in the second period, both on breakaways, and closed out the series with a 3–1 win.[48]


Edmonton won series 4–2


Second round[edit]

Eastern Conference Second Round[edit]

(A2) Ottawa Senators vs. (WC1) New York Rangers[edit]

This was the second playoff meeting between these two teams; their only previous series was in the 2012 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, which New York won in seven games. This is the second time under the current playoff format and the second year in a row in which a wild-card team has more points than its opponent during the regular season but does not have home ice advantage; the other time was the Tampa Bay Lightning and the New York Islanders in last year's Eastern Conference Second Round. Ottawa won two of the three games in this year's regular season series.

The Senators defeated the Rangers in six games. In Game 1, goaltender Craig Anderson made 34 saves in a 2–1 victory for the Senators.[49] The Rangers had leads of 3–1, 4–2, and 5–3 in Game 2 only to have the Senators tie up the game on Jean-Gabriel Pageau's hat-trick goal with 1:02 remaining. In double-overtime, Pageau's fourth goal of the game gave the Senators a 6–5 win and a 2–0 series lead. In doing this, he became the first player to score four goals in a playoff game since Johan Franzen scored four goals for the Detroit Red Wings in Game 4 of their 2010 second round series against the San Jose Sharks.[50] Mats Zuccarello had a goal and an assist in Game 3 as the Rangers won the affair 4–1.[51] The Rangers defeated the Senators 4–1 again in Game 4 tying the series 2–2; Oscar Lindberg scored twice in the victory.[52] The Rangers got an early two-goal lead in Game 5, but the Senators came back scoring three goals in return. The Rangers regained the lead, but former Ranger Derick Brassard tied the game in the final minutes to send it to overtime. Kyle Turris ended the game 6:28 into overtime to give the Senators a 5–4 victory and a 3–2 series lead.[53] In Game 6, Erik Karlsson netted the series-winning goal and added an assist for the Senators who advanced to the Conference Finals for the first time in ten years after a 4–2 victory.


Ottawa won series 4–2


(M1) Washington Capitals vs. (M2) Pittsburgh Penguins[edit]

This was the tenth playoff meeting between these teams and the second consecutive in the second round. Pittsburgh has won eight of the nine previous series including last year's confrontation which ended in six games. These teams split their four-game regular season series.

The Penguins defeated the Capitals in seven games after they gave up a 3–1 series lead. In the final eight minutes of Game 1, Nick Bonino scored the game-winning goal as the Penguins once led 2–0 only to have Washington score twice to tie the game, then with 8:24 left in the third period Bonino gave the Penguins a 3–2 lead and thus the victory.[54] Phil Kessel and Jake Guentzel both scored twice for the Penguins in a 6–2 victory, gaining a 2–0 series lead as a result.[55] The Capitals got an early 1–0 lead in Game 3 then a goal by Evgeny Kuznetsov put them up by two goals, however, in the final two minutes of the game, the Penguins tied the score 2–2. In overtime, Trevor Daley of the Penguins was penalized for holding and on the ensuing power play, Kevin Shattenkirk scored to give the Capitals a 3–2 victory.[56] Pittsburgh lead 2–0 in Game 4 only to have Washington tie the game, however, 2:49 after Nate Schmidt tied the game for Washington, Justin Schultz on the power play gave the Penguins a 3–2 lead and the victory.[57] Washington scored three times in the third period of Game 5 after being down one goal to win 4–2.[58] Andre Burakovsky scored twice in Game 6, forcing a seventh game in Washington's 5–2 triumph.[59] In Game 7, Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 29 shots and Bryan Rust scored the series-winning goal to defeat the Capitals 2–0 and advance to the Conference Finals for the second consecutive year.[60]

(C3) St. Louis Blues vs. (WC2) Nashville Predators[edit]

This was the first playoff meeting between these teams. Nashville won three of the five games in this year's regular season series.

The Predators defeated the Blues in six games. The first game of the series had Nashville gain a 3–1 lead, St. Louis then scored twice in the third period to tie the game, but with 5:05 left in the third period, Vernon Fiddler gave the Predators 4–3 lead as well a 1–0 series lead. During the game, Kevin Fiala fractured his left leg after being checked by Robert Bortuzzo; Fiala would require a stretcher to get off the ice.[61] In Game 2, Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice including the game-winner, tying the series 1–1 in a 3–2 triumph.[62] The Predators continued their home-winning streak dating back to last year's first round winning Game 3, by a final score of 3–1 with Colton Sissons assisting twice, increasing the streak to seven home games.[63] Nashville won their eighth consecutive playoff home game after Game 4, defeating the Blues 2–1 and Pekka Rinne making 32 saves.[64] Jaden Schwartz broke a 1–1 tie in the third period of Game 5 and maintained the 2–1 lead to a victory.[65] In Game 6, Ryan Johansen scored the series-winning goal in a 3–1 victory as the Predators moved onto the Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history after eighteen seasons in the league.[66] This left the Columbus Blue Jackets and Winnipeg Jets as the only two teams that have never made it to the Conference Finals.

Mark Letestu scored twice and Leon Draisaitl had a goal and three assists as the Oilers, who once gained a 3–1 lead in the third period to see the Ducks tie the game in less than three minutes, scored twice in the final five minutes to achieve a 5–3 lead and thus the victory.[67] Goalie Cam Talbot stopped 39 shots and former-Duck Patrick Maroon scored the game-winning goal in Game 2 for the Oilers' 2–1 victory.[68] Anaheim took an early 3–0 lead in Game 3 only to see the Oilers tie the game.

Television[edit]

This marked the sixth postseason under NBC Sports' current 10-year contract for American television rights to the NHL. All national coverage of games aired on either NBCSN, the NBC broadcast network, NHL Network, USA Network, or CNBC. During the first round, excluding games exclusively broadcast on NBC, the regional rightsholders of each participating U.S. team produced local telecasts of their respective games; NBCUniversal held exclusive rights to all games from the second round onward. Unlike past seasons, the national broadcasts were no longer blacked out on television in the markets of participating teams, and could co-exist with the local broadcasts (however, NBC-provided streaming was still restricted in Boston and Pittsburgh).[89]

For first-round games involving Chicago, San Jose and Washington—teams whose regional rights are held by the co-owned CSN regional sports networks—the national broadcasts shared the same video as the local broadcasts but overdubbed with NBC Sports commentators. This was done so NBC would not have to bring additional equipment to these games to produce an entirely separate telecast for the national audience.[89]

In Canada, for the third postseason under Rogers Media's current 12-year contract, coverage was broadcast by Sportsnet networks and CBC Television under the Hockey Night in Canada brand, and streamed on Sportsnet Now, CBCSports.ca (for games televised by CBC), or the subscription service Rogers NHL GameCentre Live.[90] French-language coverage was on TVA Sports. Rogers agreed not to schedule games on CBC for the first four Sunday nights of the playoffs, so that the network could broadcast Canada: The Story of Us, a documentary series it had commissioned as part of programming commemorating the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation.[91]
