by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL -- Here's a numerical look at Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal matchup between the Habs and the Bruins at the Bell Centre on Tuesday night.


3:27 – Amount of time needed by referee Chris Lee to be serenaded by a chorus of boos from the Bell Centre faithful after calling back a Brian Gionta goal in the opening minutes of Tuesday’s game.

7 – Number of goals scored by Michael Cammalleri in elimination games with the Canadiens, opening the scoring for the Habs on Tuesday night after notching six of his 13 goals last spring in do-or-die situations.

50 – Number of playoff wins registered by Habs head coach Jacques Martin in his career, becoming just the 20th NHL head coach to hit that benchmark.

728 – Number of days since Paul Mara last suited up for an NHL postseason game, dating back to Game 7 between the Rangers and Capitals on April 28, 2009. The heavily-bearded blue-liner made his presence felt on Tuesday night, dishing out four hits in the outing.

9 – Number of times Cammalleri made his way into the faceoff circle on Tuesday night, with the left winger holding his own winning 56% of his draws.

100 – Percentage of Bruins power play opportunities snuffed out by the Canadiens’ penalty killers so far in the series, the only team to remain perfect on the PK through Round 1.

8 – Number of game-winning goals scored by Brian Gionta in his nine-year NHL career, forcing Game 7 against the Bruins with a second-period power player marker on Tuesday night.

0 – Number of times in five opportunities that the Bruins have managed to eliminate the Habs in Game 6 after earning a 3-2 series lead, with the Canadiens forcing a Game 7 in each of those instances.

3 – Number of years since Carey Price last enjoyed a home playoff win on Bell Centre ice, putting an end to the seven-game drought with a 2-1 win on Tuesday night.
