by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Friday's game between the Canadiens and the Kings in Montreal.

0 – Number of losses the Canadiens have suffered in games held on Friday nights in Montreal in team history, including their most recent outing game against the Los Angeles Kings. The Habs boast a record of 12 wins, no losses, and four ties in 16 games held on this particular day of the week.

11-0-0 – The Canadiens’ record during the 2014-15 campaign when they score the first goal of the hockey game, remaining perfect in that department with a 6-2 win over the Kings on Friday night at the Bell Centre.

4 – Number of Olympic gold medalists from the 2014 Sochi Olympics who competed in Friday night’s tilt in Montreal, including Carey Price, P.K. Subban, Jeff Carter and Drew Doughty, all of whom represented Team Canada last February.

400 – Number of games Brandon Prust has suited up for in the NHL over the course of his career, including Friday night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings. Prust, who made his NHL debut back in 2006-07 with the Calgary Flames, also donned the uniform of the Coyotes and the Rangers prior to joining the Canadiens in 2012-13.

14 – Number of shots Carey Price turned aside during the first period on Friday night against the Kings. After receiving the Molson Cup for the month of November prior to the opening frame, Price stymied Los Angeles time and again, denying one scoring opportunity after another and keeping Darryl Sutter’s club off the scoreboard.

11 – Number of blocked shots the Canadiens registered through 20 minutes of play on Friday night, eight more than their counterparts during the first period. Nine Habs racked up at least one block in the opening frame.

4 – Number of consecutive games in which Tomas Plekanec has registered at least one point, keeping his point streak alive by picking up an assist on the Jiri Sekac's power play goal in the first period.

1 – Number of assists Manny Malhotra picked up on Friday night, which was also his first career point in a Canadiens uniform. The veteran forward registered the secondary helper on P.K. Subban’s goal in the second period that put the Habs up 3-0.

Number of shots the Kings fired in Carey Price's direction before managing to beat the All-World netminder on Friday night. Jake Muzzin utilized a screen in front to put one past the Anahim Lake, BC native and cut the Canadiens' lead to 3-1 early in the third period.

6 – Number of hits Dale Weise amassed on Friday night against the Kings, matching a season-high established by the Winnipeg native back on October 21 against the Detroit Red Wings.
