2024 NHL Playoffs bracket: Stanley Cup Playoffs schedule, scores, start times for Tuesday’s Round 2 games

Written by on May 14, 2024

The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs certainly has gotten off to a thrilling start. The action continued on Monday with two teams attempting to climb back into their respective series in the Carolina Hurricanes and Colorado Avalanche.

The New York Rangers had dominated the series up to this point, but the Hurricanes were able to flex their offensive muscles in Game 5. Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal in the second period, but the Hurricanes bounced back with a masterful third period. Carolina piled on four third-period goals courtesy of Jordan Staal, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Jordan Martinook, and Martin Necas, and took Game 5 by a 4-1 decision. The Hurricanes have now cut the series deficit to 3-2.

Meanwhile, the Avalanche had been victorious in Game 1, but were outscored 9-4 over the next two games against the Dallas Stars. The script ended up staying the same as the Stars put together an impressive offensive performance in Game 4. Stars forward Wyatt Johnston continued his sensation playoff performance with a pair of goals and an assist, while defenseman Miro Heiskanen tallied a goal and two assists in a dominant 5-1 victory. The Stars now have a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.

The structure of the playoffs is as follows:

  • The division winner with the most points in each conference will face the second Wild Card team in the first round. The division winner with fewer points in each conference will match up with the top Wild Card team in the first round.
  • Each series will be a best-of-seven format.
  • Home-ice advantage goes to the team with the top seed in the first two rounds of the playoffs. The team with the most points in the regular season has home-ice advantage in the conference finals and Stanley Cup Final.
