NHL will have 24-team playoff format if return to play is possible

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has announced the league is moving ahead with a 24-team expanded playoff format if its able to resume play and award the Stanley Cup.

Bettman stressed that the plan’s approval does not guarantee the resumption of games; the league and players must still determine safety protocols and solve other issues, including where to play.
