Diaz, considered a second- or third-pairing defender, has now been a member of three teams in a little over a month. He was traded to the Canucks by the Montreal Canadiens for forward Dale Weise on Feb. 3.
Diaz, an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, has one goal and 13 points in 52 games this season (46 with the Canadiens, six with the Canucks).
I think everybody wanted the puck tonight. Everybody wanted to be part of the solution and it reflected on the way we played. It's tiring when you have to chase the puck but tonight was one of those nights where everyone really wanted to make a play and wanted to have an impact on the game.
