Postgame audio/video: Canucks honor Sedin, rally past Sabres

By Mike Harrington

VANCOUVER -- I'm one of the people who likes the Cody Hodgson/Zack Kassian trade for both sides. The Sabres and Canucks each filled a need. And Hodgson has more than doubled Kassian in points (77-37) since the deal. Obviously, Vancouver got the better of the deal Sunday as Kassian assisted on all four goals in the Canucks' 4-2 win.

"I know everybody is going to focus on the four points that he gets but for me there were other things," Canucks coach John Tortorella said after the game. "He dumped the puck at the right times rather than trying to make something happen. He changed up at the right times. You could see the concentration in his game. You see it. You want to see it more."

"We want to be good with the puck down low," Kassian said. "When we come off the wall like that, we want to look to make plays. Tonight was a night where it seemed everything I passed ended up going in the net."

There was certainly the requisite frustration down the hall in the Sabres' room. Good start, not much of a finish. Click below to hear audio from around the Sabres' dressing room:
