Yup.

The way I look at it is the regular season is merely to make money and rank the teams. The playoffs are like the Championship Tournament for Lord Stanley's Cup. As long as the format for the playoffs/'tournament' is the same (four rounds, best of seven, 2-2-1-1-1 scheduling), I can't understand why anyone would think it counts as less.
