top 8 teams of each conference get into the playoffs. how many points that is depends on the standings of the teams
As far as MLB is concerned, winning percentage doesn't really enter in to whether a team makes the playoffs or not. A team makes the playoffs by winning their division or being the team with the highest winning percentage of those other teams that did not win their division. There have been teams to make the playoffs with a record as 'poor' as 83-78, as did the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals who went on to win the World Series. There have been teams with records as good as 94-68 (1982 Baltimore Orioles) that did not make the playoffs. That goes to show that a team with a winning percentage of just over .500 can make the playoffs where a team with a winning percentage of .580 can miss the playoffs.
This is best answered in opposition to your question i.e. How do teams qualify for the playoffs? The 8 division winners and 2 wild card teams from each conference. Wild card teams are determined by the best overall winning percentage from the remaining (non division winning) teams.

That depends, when a team makes it into the Stanley Cup playoffs they play teams in a best of seven game (first to four wins) series. The elimination style playful structure is designed to consist of 4 rounds including the Stanley Cup Finals for the two teams which are talented enough to make it past their competitors. So a team can play as little as 16 games throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs or as many as 28.
NHL players only receive extra money for winning the Stanley Cup if they have an incentive clause in their contract. For instance, they might make an extra 20,000$ if they make the playoffs, and an extra 100,000$ if they win the Stanley Cup.
