'"I talked to him after, and he felt that he was trying to avoid injuring himself by going over the top of him," Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff said of Varada. "He thought that if he kept going straight he would have gone head first into the wall. If he wanted to hurt him he could have just dove right into him. I think you have to stick up for your teammates and obviously (Gilmour) should be suspended for what he did. It was blatant knee to Varada's knee."'
