Blackhawks seal Presidents’ Trophy after fantastic finish to regular season.
The Chicago Blackhawks sealed the Presidents’ Trophy for the first time in 22 years following their 4-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.
Following a record breaking start to the season, Chicago have followed it up with an impressive finish as the campaign draws to a close, as they celebrate clinching the NHL’s best regular season record.
Patrick Kane had a goal and two assists, while Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Johnny Oduya all got themselves on the score-sheet as the Blackhawks dominated the third period, and have now gone 10-1-2 in their last 13 games.
The win sees them secure the NHL’s best mark for the first time since 1991, but the primary objective still remains winning their second Stanley Cup in four years.
The victory gives them 75 points for the season, and they are now assured of home-ice advantage throughout the play-offs which begin next week.
