Do not fill this in!The '''playoffs''' are a competition held after the end of the regular season. The best teams of the regular season meet the others in a system of successive rounds of direct elimination, not dissimilar to tournaments. Usually, series are played as a best-of format, a team needing to win two, three or four games to advance to the next round. ==See Also== [[Stanley Cup Playoffs]] [[Category:Terminology]] Summary: Please note that all contributions to the Ice Hockey Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://icehockey.fandom.com/wiki/Playoffs"
