At times away from the ice this season, Erik Karlsson and David Rundblad were inseparable, sharing laughs and words in their native Swedish.

When Rundblad was traded away Saturday for Kyle Turris, Karlsson was shocked.

"That's the way it is in this game," Karlsson said Monday. "From a friend point of view, it's not fun, but there's not much you can do about it. He'll probably have it good, there."
