"I played a lot of them in my career," said Gudbranson, 24, who joined the Canucks in an offseason trade after playing his first five NHL seasons with Florida. "They are a very difficult team. They move the puck very well. They have an older squad. They are experienced. They have a very good power play.

"We'll have to get some rest (after the game on Friday), come in the morning, our meetings and to be focused. If we play like we did (against the Oilers), we give ourselves a chance to win every night. "
