NASHVILLE – Here's a numerical look at Monday night's game between the Habs and Predators.
7 – Number of Monday night tilts on the schedule for the Canadiens this season, having now split the Monday games of the 2015-16 season to date after a 4-3 overtime win in Vancouver November 16 before Monday's game in Nashville.
16 – Number of times the Canadiens play on back-to-back nights this season, now owning a 3-4-0 record on the opening game of a two-games-in-as-many-nights sequence following Monday’s game in Nashville ahead of Tuesday’s game in Minnesota.
2 – Number of games missed by Jeff Petry since his arrival in Montreal, having missed just the second game of his career as a Hab on Monday with an upper body injury after having previously missed just one other game due to injury, on March 19, 2015.
298 – Number of days since Jarred Tinordi last suited up for an NHL game with the Canadiens, making his 2015-16 season debut on Monday in place of Petry.
50 – Percentage of games between the Canadiens and Predators at Bridgestone Arena that have not had a winner after 60 minutes of regulation, with five of 10 career games between the two teams in Nashville either finishing in a tie or needing overtime or a shootout to determine a winner.
228 – Number of days since Alex Galchenyuk last had five or more shots in a game, dating back to a 6-shot performance in a playoff tilt against the Lightning on May 7, before registering a season-high five shots against the Predators on Monday night.
5 – Number of hits dished out by Alexei Emelin against the Preds, giving him 98 on the season, just two shy of becoming the first Hab to hit triple digits in that category in 2015-16.
