NHL: Chicago Blackhawks edge Vancouver Canucks, clinch playoff berth

SUNDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS

Blackhawks 3, Canucks 2: Andrew Ladd scored the go-ahead goal with 2:27 left in the third period and Chicago clinched its eighth straight playoff berth with a victory over skidding Vancouver. Jonathan Toews stickhandled into the Canucks zone before dropping a pass in the high slot to Ladd, who fired in a one-timer for his 23rd goal this season and sixth in 13 games with Chicago.

Penguins 3, Rangers 2: Sidney Crosby scored on a deflection at 4:30 of overtime and surging Pittsburgh beat New York in a potential first-round playoff preview.

Hurricanes 3, Devils 2: Victor Rask had the first multigoal game of his career, scoring twice as Carolina beat New Jersey. Rask, who has scored in three straight games, ended the Hurricanes’ skid of six consecutive games without a power-play goal when he connected in the second period.
