Playoffs

The brier uses the page playoff system where the top four teams with the best records at the end of round-robin play meet in the playoff rounds. The first and second place teams play each other, with the winner advancing directly to the final. The winner of the other page playoff game between the third and fourth place teams plays the loser of the first/second playoff game in the semi-final. The winner of the semi-final moves on to the final.

Normally the 3 versus 4 page playoff game is played before the 1 versus 2 playoff game on Friday. However, since a tiebreaker was played this year on the same day to decide fourth place, the 1 versus 2 game was played first.
