How many games do you need to win to get the Stanley cup?

You need to gain enough points (2 points for wins and 1 for overtime or shootout losses) in the regular season to make the playoffs. This number depends on all the teams performances (top-8 teams in each conference make the playoffs). Once you hit the postseason you need to win 16 games in total (4 for the conference quarterfinals, 4 for conference semifinals, 4 for the conference finals, and 4 for the Stanley Cup Finals).

How many games NHL playoffs?

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.
