The Numbers game - April 17, 2010

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
WASHINGTON – Here’s a numerical look at the Habs-Caps barn burner at the Verizon Centre in Washington on Saturday night.

1-Shots needed for the Canadiens to solve Jose Theodore, with Brian Gionta beating him from the parking lot with a sweet one-timer from Scott Gomez at the 1:00 mark of the first period.
106:45 - Time spent in the Capitals' crease by Theodore last spring before being yanked in in favor of Semyon Varlamov, who went on to play 12 of the Caps next 14 games last year.
6:58-Minutes later that Theo was fooeld on the second shot he faced when he was chased from the game by Andrei Kostitsyn who beat him with a wrister to put the Habs up 2-0.

.862-Career save percentage posted by Theodore versus the Canadiens to go with his iffy 4.43 goals-against average in five games against his former team, including playoffs.

76:32-Ice-time need by Alexander Ovechkin to finally register his first shot of the postseason on Saturday night.

49-Shots fired on Jaroslav Halak by the Capitals until Ovechkin joined in on the fun in the first period of Game 2.

30-Shots blocked by the Canadiens in Game 2, with Roman Hamrlik leading the way with a game-high of seven and the Caps countering with 11.
