From ESPN:

The new plan calls for divisional playoffs, not conference playoffs as the NHL currently has. The division winner with the most regular-season points will play the lowest-seeded wild-card team in the first round, with the other division winner playing the other wild-card team.

I don't understand this. Let's say last year went like this:

Atlantic
NY Rangers - 109
Pittsburgh - 108
Philadelphia - 103
New Jersey - 102
Washington - 92


Central
Detroit - 102
Boston - 100
Florida - 94


Wouldn't that article suggest that Detroit would have to play New Jersey while Boston would play Florida? How does that make any sense?
