Daniel Sedin’s Goal A Great Way To End The NHL Season (Vid)
With the NHL season wrapping up over the weekend, there was still plenty to be decided for many teams. A few clubs found themselves still battling for a playoff spot, while others were looking to improve their seeding. As for the Vancouver Canucks, they were already locked down as the third seed in the Western Conference, but that didn’t stop their top two players from putting together one final highlight reel goal during Saturday night’s game against the Calgary Flames.
Although they did not have much to play for as a team, Canucks’ forward Henrik Sedin was very much in the hunt for the Art Ross trophy as the league’s top point producer during the regular season. Sitting one point behind Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals going into Saturday night’s game, Henrik would record four assists, none of which were sweeter than this one, his fourth of the night, and brother Daniel’s third goal of the game.
Henrik Sedin would jump ahead of Ovechkin in the points standings, and survived a five point scare from Sidney Crosby on Sunday to hold on for his first NHL scoring title of his career. Some may look at Henrik’s totals as less impressive than the two men under him (Ovechkin and Crosby) because of the number of assists, as opposed to goals, but when your helpers look this good, how can anyone complain? I certainly will not. Now let’s see if these brothers can do it in the playoffs as well.
