VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Daniel Sedin scored twice before leaving on a stretcher after taking a hit from behind as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 5-1 Sunday night in the season finale.
Frank Corrado got his first NHL goal, and Ryan Kesler and Yannick Weber also scored for Vancouver. Jacob Markstrom made 21 saves for his first victory with the Canucks.
The result of a game that meant very little was overshadowed by a nasty incident late in the second period when Daniel Sedin was checked in the numbers by Calgary’s Paul Byron and stayed down before being taken off on a stretcher. Sedin appeared to be moving his fingers, but there was no immediate update on his status. Byron was assessed a major for boarding and a game misconduct.
Johnny Gaudreau scored in his first NHL game and Karri Ramo stopped 18 shots for Calgary.
