From the playoff standpoint, it's identical to the NHL system save for the best of 5 opening round. The divisions themselves are largely self-explanatory, but you'd think they'd have switched Charlotte and Abbotsford. Interesting that NY teams are in 3 divisions among both conferences!
The Bruins have assigned defenseman Matt Hunwick and forward Vladimir Sobotka to the Providence Bruins. Both will play for the Baby B's tonight against the Manchester Monarchs. Matt Hunwick is expected to be recalled to the big club after tonight's game.
