The 2013-14 NHL season was the 97th season of the National Hockey League (NHL).

In the course of the move of the Atlanta Thrashers from Atlanta in the US state of Georgia to the Canadian Winnipeg and the resulting renaming of the team to Winnipeg Jets in the summer of 2011, a new format was introduced at the beginning of this season: the system with six divisions , which has been in place since 1998 Abolished in favor of a four-division format; a new play-off format was also introduced.

The regular season began on October 1, 2013 and ended with the Boston Bruins winning the second Presidents' Trophy on April 13, 2014. Sidney Crosby was the most successful scorer with 104 points and Alexander Ovechkin was the top scorer with 51 goals. Among the goalkeepers, Semjon Varlamow recorded the most league- wide wins with 41 wins and Tuukka Rask led the league with seven shutouts in this standings.

The playoffs began on April 16, 2014 and ended on June 24, 2014 with the second Stanley Cup win by the Los Angeles Kings, who beat the New York Rangers in the NHL final . Los Angeles' Justin Williams was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy for Most Valuable Player of the Play-Offs .

League operation

Rearrangement of the divisions

After the Atlanta Thrashers moved from Atlanta in the US state of Georgia to Winnipeg, Canada and the resulting renaming of the team in Winnipeg Jets , the National Hockey League presented a plan on December 5, 2011, with the approval of the NHL Board of Governors, according to which the existing divisions are to be dissolved and four new divisions are to be created. The newly created Western Conference would thus contain two divisions with eight teams each and the new Eastern Conference two divisions with seven teams each.

According to the plan, the four best teams in each division would have qualified for the play-offs . In addition, each team would have played a home and away game against each team from the other division during the main round; as well as five or six games against teams from their own division. The as yet unnamed divisions would have looked as follows after the decision:

A. B. C. D.
Anaheim Ducks Chicago Blackhawks Boston Bruins Carolina Hurricanes
Calgary Flames Columbus Blue Jackets Buffalo Sabers New Jersey Devils
Colorado Avalanche Dallas Stars Florida panthers New York Islanders
Edmonton Oilers Detroit Red Wings Montréal Canadiens New York Rangers
Los Angeles Kings Minnesota Wild Ottawa Senators Philadelphia Flyers
Phoenix Coyotes Nashville Predators Tampa Bay Lightning Pittsburgh Penguins
San Jose Sharks St. Louis Blues Toronto Maple Leafs Washington Capitals
Vancouver Canucks Winnipeg Jets

On January 6, 2012, the plan was rejected by the National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA), maintaining the existing format for the 2012/13 season.

During the 2012/13 season, the league and the players' union agreed on a new structure that will be implemented starting this season. Accordingly, the Winnipeg Jets will be transferred to the Central Division of the Western Conference; the Detroit Red Wings and the Columbus Blue Jackets play in the Eastern Conference instead of in the Western. Both Conferences now have two divisions: The Eastern Conference consists of the Atlantic Division and the new Metropolitan Division ; the Western Conference made up of the Central Division and the Pacific Division . A new play-off format will also be introduced, according to which the three best teams from each division will qualify for the play-offs. In addition, there are two “wild card” teams in each conference, so that there are 16 play-off participants as before. As a result of the realignment, the Eastern Conference now consists of 16 teams and the Western Conference of 14 teams. On March 14th, the new format was officially approved by the NHL Board of Governors.

The new divisions look like this:

Pacific Division Central Division Atlantic Division Metropolitan Division
Anaheim Ducks Chicago Blackhawks Boston Bruins Carolina Hurricanes
Calgary Flames Colorado Avalanche Buffalo Sabers Columbus Blue Jackets
Edmonton Oilers Dallas Stars Detroit Red Wings New Jersey Devils
Los Angeles Kings Minnesota Wild Florida panthers New York Islanders
Phoenix Coyotes Nashville Predators Canadiens de Montréal New York Rangers
San Jose Sharks St. Louis Blues Ottawa Senators Philadelphia Flyers
Vancouver Canucks Winnipeg Jets Tampa Bay Lightning Pittsburgh Penguins
Toronto Maple Leafs Washington Capitals
