Carolina is in the same conference with New Jersey, Philly, Pittsburgh, NY Rangers, Washington, and NY Islanders
and the other 3 conferences
* Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Buffalo, Florida and Tampa Bay
* Detroit, Columbus, Nashville, St. Louis, Chicago, Minnesota, Dallas and Winnipeg
* Los Angeles, Anaheim, Phoenix, San Jose, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Colorado
playoffs are going to revert back to the old style where the top 4 teams from each conference make the playoffs, face off in each of the first 2 rounds with the conference champs then play the Cup semis and finals.
