It’s a shame they can’t meet any later than the second round, due to the playoff format. This is the conference final we should have.
The longer you put it off, more likely these teams will be playing golf.
We’re not even sure these teams will be playing in the 2nd round. (Ask the 2018-19 Tampa Bay Lightning who was OUT in the 2nd round after finishing with 21 more points than any other team in the league.)
