NHL Playoffs Schedule for iPhone, iPad, and Mac Calendar apps

Updated June 23rd, 2024.

The NHL Playoffs have started, and I’ve made a calendar with all of the games, teams, times, and TV channels. Subscribe to the calendar and get updates as the playoffs move along (most of the games are not yet scheduled). Also, the calendar gets updated with links to three-minute game recap videos as games are completed. (Get to the videos by tapping any game that’s already been played so you can see the details. The link is there.)

Note: after the first round, and from then on, I am no longer updating the calendar to show the scores. Thinking it over, showing the score spoiled things for those who hadn’t yet watched the game. So I turned that feature off. The game recaps are still there.

If you’re reading this article on an iPhone or Mac, just click this link to subscribe. So easy.

The listings for the games have little hockey stick and puck icons in front, as shown below, so you can quickly pick out the hockey stuff from amongst your other appointments.

Pretty handy to have the games integrated with your regular Calendar app (in their own calendar/category of course). You don’t have to do anything to get updates– if there are any, they’ll come in automatically. See the info below about how to properly subscribe to the calendar.

Your subscription to the NHL Playoffs calendar will automatically update with next season’s games as soon as I can get the info. This is a one-time subscription that keeps paying off.

How to add the NHL Playoffs calendar to your Google calendar

Just right-click this link and copy it, go to Google Calendar (that is, use a web browser to go to calendar.google.com), sign in if necessary, then click the plus sign to the right of “Other calendars.” Choose the option to “Add from URL.” Paste in what you copied and you’re all set.

More Info

When you’re asked whether you want to subscribe to the calendar, the answer is YES, you want to subscribe. That way you get updates when I update (or correct) something. Also, if you subscribe you will get updates next year, and the next year, and so on. Subscribing is free, and you don’t have to give me your email address or anything like that. And of course you can unsubscribe if you want. It would be cool if you shared the calendar on your various social media platforms. That would help me out.

Here’s how it looks on the iPhone after you click the NHL Playoffs Calendar link.

Step 1 of subscribing to the NHL Playoffs calendar in iOS 16.4
Tap “Subscribe.”
Step 2 of subscribing to the NHL Playoffs calendar on iOS 16.4
Rename it if you like. Then tap “Add” at top right.
Step 3 of subscribing to the NHL Playoffs calendar on iOS 16.4
Tap “Done” at top right and you’re all set.

Here’s how it will look after you click the NHL Playoffs Calendar link on a Mac:

Click “Subscribe.”
Rename the calendar if you want. Choose a color. Set your own refresh frequency. I recommend "Every day."
Rename the calendar if you want. Choose a color. Set your own refresh frequency. “Every day” is what I’d do.

It would be smart to set up your calendar like this, if you can. For sure turn on the auto-refresh as information is added to the calendar as the information becomes available.

The calendar is called “NHL Playoffs” and you can simply uncheck it if you don’t want to see it. You can also rename it. Subscribe once and you’re all set, for this year and the next and the next etc. I’ll keep the calendar going as long as there’s demand for it.

Game times should be correct for your current time zone, unless you’ve done something special in your Date and Time preferences.

I’ll update the calendar with the scores of the games as they happen. You can subscribe to the calendar now and just wait for me to update things as the info becomes available. Your calendar app will always show the latest info. Enjoy.

Note: I made this calendar because someone asked me to. He’d seen my other calendars (NBA Playoffs, World Baseball Classic, World Cup, etc.) and wondered if I could make one for the NHL Playoffs. You never know until you ask!

Note 2: if you find a mistake in the calendar let me know. They happen. Also, game times sometimes get changed, and since I can’t always be watching for such things I rely on people like you to let me know. All you have to do is send an email and I’ll make the correction to the calendar.

Note 3: if you don’t want the calendar anymore you can just uncheck it in the iPhone Calendar, Mac Calendar, or Google Calendar. Or you can unsubscribe. Hopefully you’ll like it, hopefully you’ll tell your hockey-loving friends.

  1. Oh wow – just read your bio … I bought my first computer – a MacPlus – in 1986, too! (Cheers to whoever did that Limerick Machine app!) And bought my first iPhone on the first day it was available (whenever that was). Couldn’t get it to work for 4 days. I was quite pissed about that; but got over it. I’m guessing you did, too. Cheers to you, too!
