The 2000 Stanley Cup playoffs, was the playoff tournament of the National Hockey League (NHL), that began on April 12, 2000, and concluded on June 10. The New Jersey Devils defeated the reigning champion Dallas Stars in a six-game series to win their second Stanley Cup title in franchise history.

Sixteen teams qualified for the playoffs, eight from each conference, played best-of-seven series in each round, ending with each conference's champion playing a best-of-seven series in the Stanley Cup Finals for the Stanley Cup.

The Calgary Flames and the Vancouver Canucks both missed the playoffs this year. This would not happen again until 2014, when all four Western Canadian teams missed the playoffs. For the first time in history, only two Original Six teams made it to the playoffs (Toronto and Detroit). This would only happen again in 2001 (Toronto and Detroit), 2007 (New York Rangers and Detroit), 2018 (Boston and Toronto), and 2019 (Boston and Toronto). Also for the first time, the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens missed the playoffs in the same season. In addition, both conference finals went to the maximum seven games. This did not happen again until 2015.

The Stanley Cup, awarded to the champion of the NHL.
