Washington - 92

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?
With the proposed format for next year, I believe the matchups of last year in the Eastern Conference would have been:

#5 WSH vs #1 NYR
#3 PHI vs #2 PIT

#4 NJ vs #1 BOS
#3 FLA vs #2 DET

New Jersey would be the crossover team. Boston actually finished higher in the league standings than Detroit due to tiebreakers even though they both had 102 points.
