RALEIGH - Here's a numerical look at Thursday night's game on the road against the Carolina Hurricanes.
-- Numbers of years which have passed since five different Canadiens goaltenders have started at least one game in a single season. Charlie Lindgren became the fifth of the current campaign, joining Carey Price, Mike Condon, Dustin Tokarski, and Ben Scrivens in that capacity. Prior to Thursday night, the last time it happened was in 2001-02, when José Théodore, Jeff Hackett, Mathieu Garon, Stéphane Fiset and Olivier Michaud also divvied up the work five ways.
41 -- Number of away games in an NHL campaign. The Canadiens hit the road for the final time this season on Thursday, and now get set to host their home finale at the Bell Centre opposite the Lightning on Saturday.
31 -- Number of cities the Canadiens travelled to in 2015-16. In addition to the usual 29 other destinations across the League, the Habs also brought NHL hockey back to Quebec City during the preseason, as well as visited Foxboro, MA on New Year’s Day for the 2016 Winter Classic.
32 -- Number of points earned by the Canadiens’ leading scorer on the road this season, captain Max Pacioretty, who racked up 12 goals and 20 assists over 41 games -- including one of each on Thursday.
14 -- Number of multi-point games Pacioretty has enjoyed this season, following Thursday’s action.
12 -- Number of games it took Darren Dietz to score his first career NHL goal, beating Cam Ward to tie the game at 1-1 with 10 seconds to go in the first.
93 -- Number of days separating Daniel Carr’s last two goals. The 24 year-old scored for the first time on Thursday after returning from an injury which kept him sidelined from late January to April 2.
