Well in the Stanley cup playoffs it starts off with 16 teams. Both eastern and western conference have eight teams. First round team one plays eight, two plays seven, three plays six and four plays five. Each winner move on to the second round. top seed play the lowest seeds. Winners moves on the to either the eastern or western finals. then the winners of that move on the the final and fourth series. the Stanley cup. and there the top team will be crowned champion.
