[ad_1]

The 2023 Stanley Cup playoffs are here, as 16 teams compete for the most magnificent trophy in sports. The record-setting Boston Bruins are the No. 1 overall seed, but their path will be a tough one. Out West, the defending Cup champion Colorado Avalanche hope to continue their reign atop the league, after playing some of their best hockey as the regular season came to a close.

But there are 14 other teams with an equal chance to win 16 games and raise the sacred chalice. After a grueling, 82-game campaign, the “second season” has arrived.

Read on for the full playoff coverage from every first-round series all the way through the Stanley Cup Final.

Note: The Central Division seeding has yet to be completed, pending Friday’s Avalanche-Predators game.
