Henrik Sedin scored 40 seconds into overtime and Roberto Luongo stopped 22 shots for his second straight shutout, helping the Vancouver Canucks clinch the Northwest Division title with a 1-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.
By edging Calgary for first place, Vancouver's second division crown in three seasons, the Canucks also locked up the third seed in the Western Conference playoffs in their final game of the regular season. Vancouver (45-27-10) will enter the postseason on a three-game winning streak.
Sedin scored by banking in a shot off the skate of Colorado defenseman Scott Hannan. It was his 22nd goal of the season.
