Numbers Game: Canadiens @ Rangers

A numerical look at Sunday's game in Manhattan

by Staff Writer @CanadiensMTL /

NEW YORK -- Here's a numerical look at Sunday's 2-0 road loss against the Rangers.

1 - Number of games on the schedule across the NHL on Sunday. Montreal and New York shared the hockey spotlight amongst themselves, while the 29 other teams enjoyed a day off.

169 -- Number of days since the Habs' last visit to Madison Square Garden, on April 22, during Game 6 of the 2017 Eastern Division Quarterfinal. Sunday's game marked the Habs' lone visit to the home of the Rangers this season.

2 -- Number of Habs who made their 2017-18 debuts on Sunday, as Torrey Mitchell and Brandon Davidson drew into the lineup for the first time this season, in place of Ales Hemsky and Mark Streit at MSG.

2 -- Number of goals the Habs saw waived off after review in the first frame. Phil Danault's opening effort at 6:24 was called off for a kicking motion, while Max Pacioretty's would-be tally went to a coach's challenge before goaltender interference was found.

12 -- Number of hits dished out by Shea Weber during the Habs' three-game season-opening road trip, enough to lead the team in that category. The 32-year-old added another three to his tally on Sunday.

2 -- Number of days until the Habs return to friendlier confines, for their 2017-18 home opener at the Bell Centre on Tuesday. The Chicago Blackhawks will be the rare Western Conference visitors for the occasion.
