Regular season is done, and a modified 24-team tournament will determine the Stanley Cup finals. The league is working out the plan for arenas, and is still hoping to secure several "hub cities" for all remaining games to be played - without an audience. Vancouver is in the running, as are Edmonton, Toronto, Columbus, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Las Vegas.
Notably, the Stanley Cup has only gone unclaimed two times since it was first awarded in 1893: in 2005 due to the player lock-out, and 1919 due to the outbreak of the Spanish Flu.
