by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Canadiens and the Senators at the Bell Centre.

369 - Number of days that had passed since a Canadiens player last picked up points in each of his first two NHL games, as rookie Charles Hudon obtained assists in his first two games just a little over a year after Sven Andrighetto did the same, on 6 and 9 December 2014.

20 - Rank occupied by Tomas Plekanec on the Canadiens all-time games played list, playing his 792nd game for the Canadiens Saturday night against the Senators, to pull even with former Habs captain Saku Koivu.

3 - Number of goals scored by Brian Flynn against Dave Cameron’s Ottawa Senators in his career, his highest goal total against any team, as the center opened the scoring for the Canadians early in Saturday’s game finishing off a great pass from Nathan Beaulieu.

14 - Number of goals scored by the Canadiens duo of Pacioretty/Plekanec where each player picked up a point, making captain and his assistant the most prolific duo on the Habs this year, as the two combined to score the second Habs goal late in the first period.

11 - Number of games this season when Canadians got 27 shots or less on goal, as Michel Therrien’s troops peppered the Senators goalie with 27 shots in the first period alone.

223 - The number of combined career games played for the Canadiens fourth line trio of Brian Flynn (199 games played), Sven Andrighetto (22 games played), and Charles Hudon (2 games played), on Saturday night the young trio put combined to score the Habs first goal.

9 - Number of multipoint nights obtained by Dale Weise since he joined the Canadiens, with the Habs’ number 22 collecting two assists in Saturday’s game against the Senators.

9 - Number of seasons in which Tomas Plekanec has reached the 20 assists mark, the talented passer collected his 20th helper of the 2015-16 campaign in Saturday night’s clash against Ottawa, his 31st game of the season.
