PRESIDENT’S CUP FINALS
The two remaining teams will meet in the best-of-three President’s Cup Final. Teams have the option, upon mutual agreement, to play a best-of-five President’s Cup Final series. ...

The Finals IMO should be 5 game regardless. Hopefully you have teams willing to mutually agree to this every season.
