2000 Stanley Cup playoffs

The 2000 Stanley Cup playoffs, the championship of the National Hockey League (NHL), began on April 12, 2000, and concluded on June 10. The 16 teams that qualified, eight from each conference, played best-of-7 series for Conference Quarterfinals, Conference Semifinals and Conference Finals, with each conference champion playing a best-of-7 series in the Stanley Cup Finals for the Stanley Cup.

The playoffs ended when the New Jersey Devils defeated the reigning champion Dallas Stars in a six-game series to win their second Stanley Cup title in franchise history. Devils defenseman Scott Stevens was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs.

For the first time in history, the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens missed the playoffs in the same season. Additionally, the Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks both missed the playoffs in the same season for the first time since the 1955–56 season.

The Stanley Cup, awarded to the champion of the NHL.
