NHL may go into Stanley Cup Playoffs if they can return

Commissioner Gary Bettman has changed his tune regarding the NHL rescheduling regular-season games, raising the possibility that the league might jump right into the Stanley Cup playoffs if it is to return. In an interview with NBCSN, Bettman also said the league is looking into playing games at neutral sites if teams are unable to play in their home markets as a result of the number of cases of the coronavirus there. He stressed, however, that nothing is set in stone with so many unknowns with the pandemic.
