How NHL’s return to play plan impacts Stanley Cup odds

Canadian-based NHL teams were the big winners when Gary Bettman unveiled the league’s return-to-play plans on Tuesday. With the NHL regular season now officially over and the league moving forward with plans to include 24 teams in the playoffs, the NHL postseason will feature six Canadian-based NHL teams for the first time since 1993.

#NationSims2 Playoff Live Stream Sim: Play-in – Game 3 – Blackhawks vs Oilers 7pm MT

Strange days indeed and with the play-in going to OT and I forgot to set the settings. The Oilers would go on to win in a shootout because the people watching voted for that (over going to rematch and playing the game over again with next goal wins rules) and Game Two ends 4-3 in a shootout. That mix up (oversight by me) has been fixed and as per the new play-in rules, all further games will be continuous overtime.

At some point this summer, the Edmonton Oilers will take the ice for a best-of-five play-in series against the Chicago Blackhawks. Should the Oilers win that series, they will advance to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for just the second time since 2006. The Oilers finished the season fourth in the Western Conference via points, but slide to fifth behind Dallas when going by points percentage.

A mere 75 days after the NHL paused the 2019/2020 season, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman outlined the National Hockey League’s return-to-play plan yesterday. Bettman didn’t give an exact date for a return because, “anybody who gives you a date is guessing,” he said. However, he does have a plan and here is some information on the most pressing questions.
