So, if the Rangers finished 5th in the Atlantic with 90 points and the Bruins finish 4th in the northeast with 89 points, the Rangers can bump out the Bruins and then play the northeast conference champ? Where in the 2 "western" conferences, it would be strictly top 4 pout of 7? Stupid idea, but not as stupid as the possibility of having an LA-NY first round match-up.
This Could still possibly be true, patnyr. Though it seems that the PA doesn't want any 5th place teams missing the Playoffs if they have better records than 4th place teams in other Conferences.
