The four conference finalists receive a bye through the first round of playoffs. The four conference runners-up (seeded fifth through eighth) are matched in two best-of-five first-round series, with the winners advancing to play one of the conference finalists in their respective best-of-seven conference semifinal series. All rounds are best-of-seven series.
