BRACKET: If The Season Ended March 30, 2018…

March 30, 2018 Update — IN the playoffs: Boston, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Washington, Nashville, Winnipeg, and Vegas. In Position: Pittsburgh, Columbus, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Minnesota, St. Louis, San Jose, Los Angeles, and Anaheim. Still Alive: Florida, Carolina, Colorado, and Dallas.

March 20, 2018 Update: The only team swapping out of the field of 16 is Dallas, replaced by Colorado as a wild card. All the rest are the same, except the seeds jumbled in both the East and West. Tampa Bay and Nashville are the first teams to clinch playoff berths.

March 8, 2018 Update: Despite another slight shift in the seeding, it’s the same sixteen playoff teams again. Pittsburgh moves into first place in the Metro for the only divisional lead change. The Kings fall into a wild card with Anaheim’s surge into second place.

February 28, 2018 Update: A few seeds switched here and there, but it’s all the same key players as two weeks ago. Only two newcomers enter the latest bracket: East wild card Columbus and West wild card Anaheim. Out of the mix are Carolina and St. Louis, both of which are in major tailspins. Vegas remains the top overall team in the Western Conference, while Tampa Bay rules in the East.

February 14, 2018 Update: Our first look at the NHL playoff picture, and when you think about it, this isn’t much different from the bracket we’d have done a month ago. Vegas, Nashville, Winnipeg, Tampa Bay, Washington, and Boston feature prominently. Pittsburgh surged into their position, the Devils and Flyers are newcomers, and nobody knows how Carolina got there, but each conference’s leaders have been relatively consistent.
