The 2012–13 NHL season was the 96th season of operation (95th season of play) of the National Hockey League (NHL). The 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs marked the first time since 1996 that every Original Six team has advanced to the playoffs in the same year. The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley cup.
For the first time ever, the final five teams remaining in the playoffs were the previous five Stanley Cup champions: Detroit (2008), Pittsburgh (2009), Chicago (2010), Boston (2011), and Los Angeles (2012); and, indeed, with the Detroit Red Wings being the first of these teams eliminated from the playoffs, the final four teams were the previous four Cup champions.
The NHL announced the revised salary cap on June 28, 2012. The salary cap figure is in effect until the end of the current collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the Player's Association. The salary cap for players' salaries rose $5.9 million (USD) to $70.2 million per franchise. The salary floor, the minimum which franchises must spend rose to $54.2 million.
