National Hockey League returning with 24-team tournament

It’s normally sixteen teams that make the NHL postseason, with one taking home the coveted Stanley Cup. Last night the players’ union agreed to a 24-team tournament framework, but there are still many details to hammer out. The general concept involves the teams playing at neutral sites without fans. The league halted play on March 12th, and the four top teams in the standings as of that date would face each other for overall seeding. Teams 9-24 would pair off for best-of-five series with the winners creating a standard postseason field that would have best-of-seven series throughout.
