ANAHEIM, Calif., March 29 (UPI) -- Brian Boucher made 23 saves Friday and the San Jose Sharks clinched the Pacific Division title with a 3-1 victory over Anaheim.

It is the first division crown for the Sharks in three seasons. San Jose won for the 16th time in 18 games. They have not lost in regulation since Feb. 20.

Anaheim had a franchise-record 10-game home winning streak snapped.

Jeremy Roenick broke a 1-1 tie with a power-play goal 8:50 to play in the second period. Curtis Brown added insurance early in the third period.

Anaheim's Jonas Hiller -- filling in for goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere (back spasms) -- allowed three goals on 27 shots. Giguere missed his fourth straight game.
