Yannick Weber, Eddie Lack lead Vancouver Canucks over Arizona Coyotes 5-0
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Yannick Weber scored twice and Eddie Lack made 28 saves for his second shutout of the season Thursday night as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Arizona Coyotes 5-0.
Daniel Sedin, Ronalds Kenins and Dan Hamhuis had the other goals for Vancouver, which clinched a Western Conference playoff spot two nights earlier.
Alexander Edler added three assists, while Henrik Sedin chipped in with two for the Canucks, who missed the postseason in 2013-14 for the first time in six years. They have rebounded under rookie head coach Willie Desjardins.
Depending on what Calgary does in its finale Saturday against Winnipeg, the Canucks still might need a victory in their home game later that evening against Edmonton to lock up second place in the Pacific Division and home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
