2021 NHL Playoffs: Stanley Cup Final schedule, scores, bracket, standings, games, TV channels

Hockey fans know that the NHL’s Stanley Cup Playoffs are one of the best postseasons in sports. And the Stanley Cup Final has come and gone with the Tampa Bay Lightning winning their second consecutive Stanley Cup. The Lightning took down the upstart Montreal Canadiens in five games, with goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy being awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the playoffs. 

This season was different from last year, which was different from others in the past due to the coronavirus pandemic. Due to travel restrictions in Canada, the NHL realigned their divisions, with one including just Canadian teams.
