According to the North American media, the NHL is increasingly inclined to cancel the remaining games of the regular season and discusses with the players for the resumption of the season with the playoffs.
However, for obvious reasons, the format will be expanded – not the traditional 16 participants and 24.
Thus on 4 the current leader of the two conferences (Boston, Dallas, Washington, Philadelphia in the East and St. Louis, Colorado, Vegas and Dallas in the West) immediately fall to the second round of the playoffs.
The matches will hold at least two cities (for all teams it will be a neutral city), and without the fans.
Yet nothing the NHL has not officially announced, but the management hopes to resume the championship in July.
