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.
