This just in courtesy of Sportsnet hockey insider Elliotte Friedman, the NHL has made a decision regarding its playoff format beyond the first "play in" round when it comes to bracketing versus seeding. 

The league will reportedly re-seed each position following each round, rather than have teams play through a bracketed format. Additionally, each round after the initial "play in" round will be a best of 7 series.
