Best Answer

The highest remaining seed in the conference (Eastern or Western) plays the lowest remaining seed in their respective conference. Then the next highest seed gets the next lowest possible seed, and so on.

For example, if after round #1 seeds 1, 2, 4, and 6 remain; 1 plays 6, and 2 plays 4.

3-1 series comeback NHL?

A 3-1 series comeback in the NHL refers to a team trailing three games to one in a best-of-seven playoff series, and then winning the next three games to advance to the next round. This type of comeback is considered rare and difficult to achieve, as teams facing a 3-1 deficit are often considered heavy underdogs. However, it has happened several times in NHL history, with the most recent example being the 2020 Dallas Stars coming back against the Colorado Avalanche in the Western Conference Second Round.
