What am I missing here?

AHL has the crossover rule.
If one team is a 5 seed in a division has a better record then the 4 seed in the other divison the 5 seed makes it in.
So say its in the East this year Philly would be in over Manchester.
I am not sure how they are doing the crossover this season.
