I agree, you don't need to change the format. I would just add a special feature

1. Most points of the two divisions
2. Leader of the other division
3-8 stays the same

The feature I liked was when getting to the 3rd round with 4 remaining teams, they reseed the teams by points and not by geography.

Example four remaining teams during a playoff

West Conference
San Jose: 109 points
Nashville: 98 points

East Conference
New York Rangers: 103 points
Tampa Bay: 96 points

San Jose would play Tampa Bay
New York Rangers would play Nashville

Giving a chance between Sharks and Predators in the Cup Finals.
