The Numbers Game: December 19, 2015

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

DALLAS -- Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Habs and the Stars.

2,136 – Number of days since P.K. Subban made his NHL debut, on February 12, 2010 in a game against the Flyers. The 26-year-old blue-liner suited up for career game No. 400 on Saturday night in Dallas, just under six years later.

5 – Number of players who have made their NHL debuts with the Canadiens this season, including Daniel Carr, Charles Hudon, Bud Holloway, Mike Condon, and Mike McCarron, who suited up for his first NHL game in Dallas, with his father, mother, sister, and girlfriend watching from the crowd.

7 – Consecutive number of games in which the Canadiens had been blanked on the power play heading into Saturday’s game, having gone 0-for-21 with the man advantage in that span, before snapping the scoreless streak against the Stars off a beautiful move by Daniel Carr with Antoine Roussel looking on from the penalty box.

10 – Number of power play assists racked up by Subban so far this season, becoming the first Canadiens player to hit double digits in helpers with the man advantage with his assist on Carr’s second-period marker.

1 – Number of NHL teams against whom Tomas Fleischmann is currently averaging at least a point-per-game, having picked up his sixth point against the Stars on Saturday, his sixth career game against Dallas, with an assist on Carr’s power play goal.

3 – Number of times the Canadiens have given up five or more goals in a game this season, doing so on Saturday for just the third time this year and the first time since a 6-1 loss to the Avalanche on November 14.

12:36 – Ice time enjoyed by Jeff Petry in the game before seeing his night come to an early end in the second period after receiving a hit from Jamie Benn.

3 – Team-leading number of shorthanded goals scored by Paul Byron, who slipped his fifth goal of the season past Niemi in the third period.
