NHL Playoffs: Canada’s Quintet

The action starts tonight!

Five teams from Canada made the playoffs after none of the seven got in last season, the first time since 1969-70 that the playoffs were contested without a team from Canada.

There were also five teams from Canada in the playoffs in 2015; however, two (Montreal Canadiens and Calgary Flames) got out of the first round and none advanced past the second round.

A team from Canada hasn’t won the Stanley Cup since Montreal defeated the Los Angeles Kings in five games in 1993.

Watch the action and find out where and when the games are on the official NHL website!
