With the way the Carolina Hurricanes have handled the Panthers this season, it is pretty apparent Florida does not want to face them in the postseason.

With the way the NHL has structured the postseason this year, the top four teams in each division will square off in their own interdivisional playoff.

The champion will play the fourth-place team in the opening round and the second playing the third.

As it stands right now, Carolina would take the division (the Canes do have 10 games left) with Florida and Tampa Bay finally getting that Sunshine State Series we have always wanted to see.

But that is jumping ahead just a touch.
