UNDATED (AP) — The Anaheim Ducks and Vancouver Canucks have become the third and fourth NHL teams to clinch a division title.

Viktor Fasth (fahst) picked up his fourth shutout of the season by making 24 saves in the Ducks’ 3-0 win at Edmonton. Ryan Getzlaf (GETS’-lahf), Radek Dvorak (duh-VOHR’-ak) and Sami Vatanen (VAH’-tah-nehn) scored for the Ducks, who captured their first Pacific Division title since 2007 by winning back-to-back games in Edmonton.

The Canucks are Northwest Division champions for the fifth consecutive year after Daniel Sedin (seh-DEEN’) provided a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win over Chicago. Jannik (YAH’-nik) Hansen and Zack Kassian also scored, and Henrik Sedin (seh-DEEN’) collected two assists.

Also on ice, Dustin Jeffrey had a goal and an assist in the first period of Pittsburgh’s 3-1 victory at Ottawa. Tomas Vokoun (voh-KOON’) stopped 33 shots against the Senators, who remain tied with the New York Rangers for seventh place in the East.

Antti Miettinen (AN’-tee MYEH’-tih-nehn) fired a shot that trickled between the legs of goaltender Jhonas (YOH’-nas) Enroth with 7:36 left to give Winnipeg a 2-1 win at Buffalo. That leaves the Jets one point behind the Southwest Division-leading Capitals and one point in back of the Senators and Rangers in the battle for the last two Eastern Conference playoff berths.

Jimmy Howard handled 34 shots and Johan Franzen scored the first and last goals of Detroit’s 4-0 shutout of Phoenix. Henrik Zetterberg had three assists for the Red Wings, who climbed to within one point of Minnesota and Columbus in the scramble for the final two Western Conference playoff berths.
