-"We're facing a juggernaut," Boudreau said of the meeting against the Canucks. "There's no ifs, ands [or buts] about it. They've got strength right through their lineup and they're going to be a very difficult team to beat. But it's a tremendous challenge for us. It's a great test, and we're looking forward to it.

"We have to be at the top of our game or we're going to get our butts handed to us. We seem to be able to get up for those kinds of teams. I think we'll be able to do the same thing again." (NHL.com Game Preview)
