Numbers Game - October 2

A numerical look at Sunday night's contest in Toronto

by Montreal Canadiens @canadiensmtl /

Here's a numerical look at the facts and figures surrounding Sunday night's game in Toronto.

2 -- Number of return trips the Canadiens made over the first weekend of October. After daytripping to Ottawa and back on Saturday, the Habs did the same on Sunday -- albeit by air -- flying out of Montreal in the afternoon, to Toronto, and back within an eight-hour span.

6 -- Number of Habs who suited up for both games in Ontario, as Stefan Matteau, Jacob De La Rose, Michael McCarron, Nikita Scherbak, Daniel Audette, and Charles Hudon composed the septet that played the Canadiens' two games in two days.

3 -- Number of alternate captains on the ice for Montreal. With the Canadiens' habitual leadership group not making the trip, Nathan Beaulieu, David Desharnais, and Jeff Petry stepped in and stitched a trio of 'A's to their jerseys for the night.

5 -- Number of points Nathan Beaulieu has racked up over just three games this preseason, tying him for tops in that category along with Paul Byron.

8:00 -- Number of minutes the Canadiens spent down a man in the second period. Going perfect on the penalty kill in the middle frame, the Habs served all four of their penalties to the full extent.

100% -- Percentage of Greg Pateryn's three preseason outings in which the 26-year-defenseman has played over 20 minutes of ice time.

3 -- Number of Montreal teams that were in action on Sunday, as a pair of 1:00 p.m. Montreal Impact (MLS) and Montreal Alouettes (CFL) games made for a busy sports weekend in the city.
