The 2007 Kelly Cup Playoffs of the ECHL began on April 9, 2007. 18 teams qualified for the playoffs (10 from the American Conference and 8 from the National Conference). In the American Conference, the top five teams from each division qualified for the playoffs. In the National Conference, the top eight teams in the conference standings qualified for the playoffs.

The Kelly Cup Final ended on May 31, 2007, with the Idaho Steelheads defeating the Dayton Bombers four games to one to win the second Kelly Cup in team history. Idaho goaltender Steve Silverthorn was named the Kelly Cup Playoffs Most Valuable Player.

Playoff Format Edit

National ConferneceEdit

The ECHL will use a straight-up, eight team knockout format for the National Conference.

The top eight teams will advance to the playoffs, with the two division champions being the first and second seeds. The other six teams will be seeded by points.

In the second round, the best team remaining from each division is seeded first and second, and the other two teams are seeded by points.

The better team gains home-ice advantage for the conference finals.

All games are best of seven games.

American ConferenceEdit

Because of the unbalance of the ECHL (15 teams in the American Conference compared to 10 teams in the National), the ECHL will have ten teams in the playoffs from the American Conference.

To save on travel expenses, both divisions will have individual playoffs before meeting in the conference finals. The top three teams in each division receive a bye and advance to the first round. A best-of-three "play-in" round will be held between the fourth and fifth place teams. The winner gains the fourth seed headed to the first round, a best-of-five series. The winners of the two series in the first round play in the division finals, a best-of-seven series.

The winners of the two division finals play in a best-of-seven conference final.

Kelly Cup FinalsEdit

The Kelly Cup Finals will be a best-of-seven series between the two conference champions.

Playoff Seeds Edit

After the 2006-07 ECHL regular season, 18 teams qualified for the playoffs. The Las Vegas Wranglers were the National Conference regular season champions, as well the Henry Brabham Cup winners with the best regular season record. The Florida Everblades were the National Conference regular season champions.
