NHL bracket, why the change!? - April 28, 2012, 09:26 PM

WTF? Overnight the bracket changed and is opposite of every bracket arrangement ever set.

usually its like this : NHL Hockey - CBSSports.com News, Rumors, Scores, Stats, Fantasy Advice

1 vs 8
4 vs 5

then
3 vs 6
2 vs 7

So why this year is it: 2012 NHL Playoffs bracket - playoff tree

1 vs 8
2 vs 7

then

3 vs 6
4 vs 5


WTF? I am at a total loss, and cant find any explanation online, esp since 3 days ago it was not set up this way and announcers were saying if the caps won they would play the winner of NJ vs FL (3 vs 6).......?

At the end of each round, new numbers are assigned. So if seeds 1, 3, 5, and 7 make it through. They become seeds 1-4 and are set up like the previous round ( 1v4 and 2v3). Same thing for next round, that's why making a hockey bracket is kind of useless because if you get one team wrong, it all goes to shit.

Oh, and the seeding numbers aren't literally changed, but restructured to make sure regular season standings are still reflected.
