New CCHA Playoff Format

The CCHA announced the changes to their playoff format to reflect their new 11-team league next season, now that Nebraska-Omaha has left for the WCHA, and the league refuses to admit Alabama-Huntsville.

It's basically the same format, except that the fifth seed gets a bye in the first week of the playoffs instead of having the play the 12th seed. That keeps everyone in the conference in the CCHA tournament with a shot at the automatic bid.
