Kings Lose At Vancouver, 3-1, Canucks Achieve President's Trophy

Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) – Just two days after clinching the Western Conference’s top seed, the Vancouver Canucks captured their first ever Presidents’ Trophy with a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.

Daniel Sedin scored a goal and dished out an assist for the Canucks, who have set franchise records in wins (52), road wins (26) and points (113) in a single season.

Christian Ehrhoff and Ryan Kesler also lit the lamp for Vancouver, which claimed home-ice advantage through the Stanley Cup Finals due to its victory and Philadelphia’s regulation loss to the Thrashers.

Roberto Luongo made 18 saves for the Canucks, who got the No. 1 seed in the West with Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Nashville. Vancouver has won five in a row and 12 of 13 overall.

Kyle Clifford scored the lone goal for the Kings, who are tied with Nashville for the fifth spot in the West with 94 points.

Jonathan Quick made 32 saves for Los Angeles, which had a four-game winning streak snapped.
