Canucks clinch berth with Flames loss to Stars
The Vancouver Canucks confirmed their dominance in the Northwest Division well before meeting the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.

Vancouver captured the Northwest for the fourth straight season and fifth time in six campaigns when the second-place Calgary Flames failed to claim two points in a 4-1 loss to Dallas on Saturday afternoon. The Canucks became the second team in the Western Conference to secure a place in 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and they are assured a top-three seed when the tournament begins next month.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.

— Sabres forward Tyler Ennis on the progress of Buffalo's rebuilding process
