Cody Hodgson gelled with Thomas Vanek and Jason Pominville in Buffalo's 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.

Hodgson had a goal while Vanek finished the contest with five points and Pominville registered three assists. "That line was the difference," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said. "Van was fabulous, [Hodgson] was terrific and Pommer was right somewhere between those two. We look at those guys as being our top line that can push us to that next level." With that in mind, it's a safe bet that Hodgson will stay on the top line for at least a little while longer.
