On Wednesday Apr. 27, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman emphasized no decisions have been made and noted that government and medical officials will ultimately make the call on when sports can return. Still, the league and NHL Players' Association have formed a joint committee to determine a path forward that could get games back on the ice sometime in July without fans in attendance.

Betting props were released prior to the season for every NHL team on whether they would make the playoffs or not. Right now, nothing is finalized, but out of the 16 teams that would make the playoffs if it started today, 13 were expected to be there.

To no one's surprise, Tampa Bay, Boston, Toronto, and Vegas, the four biggest favorites to make the postseason, are all in line to be playing for the Stanley Cup.

The three teams that actually closed at plus-money to qualify for the playoffs were Philadelphia, Columbus, and Edmonton. The Blue Jackets closed at +375 betting odds as a "Yes" to make the postseason prior to the season, while the Oilers were +240 to advance to the playoffs, as they currently sit in second place of the Pacific division.
