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

10 – Rank Saku Koivu occupies among the Canadiens’ all-time scoring leaders. With 641 career points in Montreal, Koivu is ahead of a number of Habs legends, including Elmer Lach, Mats Naslund and Dickie Moore.

70.5 – Percentage of career games Saku Koivu has played with the Canadiens, suiting up 792 times with the Habs in 1,124 games played.
3:47 – Time, in minutes, of the ovation Saku Koivu received from the Montreal crowd when the former Habs captain stepped back onto Bell Centre ice in a Canadiens uniform for the first time since 2009.

141 – Number of games Rene Bourque played with the Canadiens since 2012, before being traded to Anaheim in exchange for defenseman Bryan Allen on November 20, 2014. In the 12 games leading up to Thursday’s first encounter against his former team, Bourque has registered one goal and three assists.

1:28 – Average ice time, in minutes, for Michael Bournival and Eric Tangradi during the first period, as the two forwards notably spent a 2:43 shift together thanks to a pair of icing calls.

6 – Number of hits dished out by Alexei Emelin on Thursday night, as the Russian defenseman found his checking touch against the Ducks after being kept off the scoresheet in that category opposite the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

23 – Number of NHL teams against which David Desharnais has now scored at least one goal, adding the Ducks to that list with a one-timer to knot things up early in the third.

54 – Percentage of career points Andrei Markov has racked up on the power play after the veteran defenseman picked up his 248th with the man advantage while setting up the Desharnais equalizer.

2 – Number of career fights between Brandon Prust and Clayton Stoner after the pair of heavyweights squared off on Thursday following a third-period hit from the latter which sent Max Pacioretty to the dressing room for the remainder of the evening.

1 – Number of home games remaining in 2014 as the Habs now host the Sens on Saturday before closing out the first half of the decade on the road in New York, Carolina and Florida.
