Stanley Cup playoffs[edit]

During the playoffs, TSN has third, fifth, seventh, and eighth choices of first-round series, second and fourth in the second round, and second in the conference finals. This means that there is the possibility of TSN covering a Canadian team during the playoffs.[6] This happened during the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, as TSN televised the Calgary Flames' first-round series against the Chicago Blackhawks and in the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs when the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Washington Capitals in seven games.
