This is true, the teams who are in the playoffs pay there players a set fee per player (dont know if it is a set round amount like 1st round 20,000, second round 40,000.. or if it just like 50,000 each round but they do get something. (it is equal for all players too, so if the pens advanced dupuis and crosby would get the same amount).

Also the NHLPA gets revenue shared with them from the NHL so the pension fund, injury recover, other compensations can all be covered. The NHLPA is what gets the larger amount.
