Washington 92 (38 ROW)

Boston 102 (40 ROW)
Detroit 102 (39 ROW)
Florida 94
Ottawa 92 (35 ROW)

The matchups would be
Rangers vs Washington
Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia

Boston vs New Jersey
Detroit vs Florida

Ottawa would miss.

The only thing we don't know is what would happen if Washington had 91 points. In that scenario, do both Ottawa and New Jersey cross-over? Or if the top 4 in each division match the top 8 in the conference, the divisional matchups stay intact? I hope it's the latter, personally.
Right Tawnos, but you have 2 assumptions in there. First, you have the lowest overall seed (#5 Atlantic) staying in division. I don't know if we know that for sure. Then, you also crossed New Jersey over, which looks good, but look at the points:
Boston wins the division, and for that, they play NJ, with 8 more points than Florida, who plays Detroit? Some reward for winning the division.

That's why there are so many questions.
