Numbers Game: Canadiens @ Devils

A numerical look at Monday's 4-3 overtime win in New Jersey

by Montreal Canadiens @CanadiensMTL /

NEWARK -- Here's a numerical look at some of the stats, facts and figures from Monday's first half of back-to-back games to start the week.

3 -- Number of teams goaltender Al Montoya has faced more than once this season. The Devils became the third club on Monday, following a pair of outings each against Columbus and St. Louis earlier in the campaign.

1 -- Number of fewer defensemen the Canadiens had at the Prudential Center at puck drop, in comparison to during the morning skate. After practicing with the team in the morning, Greg Pateryn was dealt to the Dallas Stars in the afternoon, in exchange for Jordie Benn.

0 -- Number of power play opportunities for the Habs through two periods of hockey on Monday, as the Devils steered clear of the sin bin during the game's opening 40.

11 -- Number of seconds it took Alexander Radulov to get Montreal on the board after John Moore doubled the Devils lead at 2:38 in the third.

31 -- Number of goals this season for Max Pacioretty. The Canadiens captain hit and surpassed the 30-goal mark for a fourth consecutive year on Monday, after beating Cory Schneider twice in the third.

5 -- Number of NHLers -- Pacioretty included -- who have hit 30 goals so far in 2016-17.

2.5 -- Number of back-to-back series remaining for the Canadiens this season. On Tuesday, the Habs will host the Blue Jackets at the Bell Centre, before playing back-to-back games just twice more, against the Senators on March 18 and 19, and the Lightning and Red Wings on April 7 and 8.
