Best Answer

That depends, when a team makes it into the Stanley Cup playoffs they play teams in a best of seven game (first to four wins) series. The elimination style playful structure is designed to consist of 4 rounds including the Stanley Cup Finals for the two teams which are talented enough to make it past their competitors. So a team can play as little as 16 games throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs or as many as 28.

It really depends on how many games it is for a team to win a round because it is best out of 7.
