WESTERN CONFERENCE
1 Chicago vs. 6 Phoenix (cross-over)
2 Anaheim vs. 5 San Jose
3 Vancouver vs. 4 Los Angeles
7 Dallas vs. 8 St. Louis

EASTERN CONFERENCE
1 Montreal vs. 6 Ottawa
2 Boston vs. 4 Toronto
3 Pittsburgh vs. 5 Detroit (cross-over)
7 Carolina vs. 8 New Jersey

Yuck. Here would be my modifications:

WESTERN CONFERENCE
1 Chicago vs. 8 St. Louis
2 Anaheim vs. 7 Dallas (cross-over)
3 Vancouver vs. 6 Phoenix
4 Los Angeles vs. 5 San Jose

EASTERN CONFERENCE
1 Montreal vs. 8 New Jersey (cross-over)
2 Boston vs. 6 Ottawa
3 Pittsburgh vs. 7 Carolina
4 Toronto vs. 5 Detroit (YES!):
Based on those Standings, here's how I'd do them:
WESTERN CONFERENCE
1 Chicago vs 8 St. Louis
2 Anaheim vs 6 Phoenix
3 Vancouver vs 5 San Jose
4 Los Angeles vs 7 Dallas (crossover)

EASTERN CONFERENCE
1 Montreal vs 7 Carolina
2 Boston vs 6 Ottawa
3 Pittsburgh vs 8 New Jersey
4 Toronto vs 5 Detroit
