Assistant GM Kevin Vander Geest updates the playoff format. “Two of the top four teams must take a bye and then seeded teams to playoff. If 1st and 2nd want to play then 3rd and 4th must take the bye. There must be 2 byes, the bye option starts at the top and and will move down until both are gone.”
As soon as teams have made their decisions, The Bruins will announce their playoff information.
