VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Zack Kassian had four assists and the Vancouver Canucks rallied to beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-2 Sunday night.

The Canucks have consecutive wins for the first time since mid-January. Vancouver pulled within three points of eighth-place Phoenix, and one point of ninth-place Dallas in the race for the second wild-card playoff spot in the Western Conference.

The Sabres, last in the NHL by a wide margin, suffered their eighth loss in the past 10 games as they squandered an early 2-0 lead.

Brad Richardson, Shawn Matthias, Yannick Weber, David Booth scored for the Canucks. It was Booth's first goal in 33 games.

Tyler Ennis and Jamie McBain scored for Buffalo.
