Canucks begin Stanley Cup playoffs on Wednesday (SCHEDULE)

Aug 10 2020, 4:11 pm

Make Shark Club your home for the playoffs! With Happy Hour twice daily, and all-night Happy Hour on Fridays, there’s no better place to live the playoff experience.

The road to the Stanley Cup will go through the defending champions for the Vancouver Canucks.

After a four-game series win over the Minnesota Wild in the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, the Canucks have earned the right to play in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in five years.

Their opponent is the St. Louis Blues, who captured their franchise’s first-ever championship last season. The Blues had the best record in the Western Conference this season, but lost all three round robin seeding games last week.

The Canucks are the #5 seed in the West, while the Blues got the #4 seed. St. Louis will have “home ice” advantage, meaning they get last line change for Games 1, 2, 5, and 7, albeit with every game held at an empty arena in Edmonton.

Game 1 is set for Wednesday at 7:30 pm PT. Games 3 and 4 will also be 7:30 pm starts, though you’ll need to get out of work early to see Game 2, which is on Friday at 3:30 pm.

Just three Canadian teams will be participating in the Stanley Cup playoffs this year, with the Calgary Flames taking on the Dallas Stars and the Montreal Canadiens up against the Philadelphia Flyers. The first playoff games begin tomorrow.

Here’s the full playoff schedule, with game times listed in Eastern Time:
