NHL Playoff Bracket 2019: Updated Conference Finals Schedule and Outlook

The Eastern Conference finals ended on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Western Conference finals are just heating up.

The Boston Bruins swept the Carolina Hurricanes to advance to the Stanley Cup finals, and they now await the winner of the series between the San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues. However, they'll go at least a week between games as the earliest the Western Conference finals can end is Tuesday.

The Sharks and Blues have both been resilient teams this postseason, with neither playing a series shorter than six games. And that's not changing now, with the Western Conference finals guaranteed to go to at least Game 6.
