Blackhawks clinch Presidents’ Trophy
With one trophy down, the Blackhawks now will shift their focus on grabbing the ultimate prize.
The Hawks clinched the Presidents’ Trophy —awarded to the team with the most points in the NHL during the regular season — when they defeated the Oilers 4-1 on Wednesday night at Rexall Place in Edmonton.
With two games remaining, the Hawks now only have to concentrate on getting healthy and remaining that way before the Western Conference playoffs begin next week. They will have home-ice advantage for as long as they are in the hunt for the Stanley Cup.
