From the ESPN and TSN articles, it sounds like each division won't necessarily always have a "4th place" team make the playoffs, as one division could theoretically have 5 teams in and the other may only have their guaranteed 3 teams. If one division has 5 teams make it in, teams 4 and 5 are the wild cards. The division winner with the better record would play the worse of the two wild cards while the other division's winner would play the other wild card in the first round. Teams 2 and 3 would play each other as normal.

I think the new format will at least be a little interesting, and being on the east coast I'll love the new start times.
