Found April 23, 2013 on Fox Sports West:
After failing to qualify for the playoffs last season, the Anaheim Ducks were picked by most NHL pundits to once again, be one of the leagues bottom feeders. With a 3-0 victory over Edmonton on Monday night, the Ducks clinched their second Pacific Division title in their 20-year history. Its exciting to win the Pacific Division.

Pacific Division Clinched!
