So, does anyone have an answer to this question? I understand that the two wild cards can come from the same division, and in that case one of them will cross over and play in the other division's playoff bracket. Let's say that doesn't happen and the wild cards are the Flyers with 90 pts and the Senators with 88 pts. The Penguins own the best record in the Conference, the Bruins win their division with the 2nd best record. Would the Senators then cross over and face the Penguins... with the Flyers crossing over and playing the Bruins, despite the fact that the NHL is pushing the benefits of Divisional playoffs?
I'm getting the sense that this is what would happen. Please tell me that they didn't **** this up that bad. PLEASE!
