The Numbers Game: December 29, 2015

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

FLORIDA - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game between the Habs and the Panthers.



800 – Number of games that Tomas Plekanec has played with the Canadiens since the start of his NHL career, including Tuesday night’s tilt in Sunrise. By hitting that plateau in South Florida, Plekanec became the 19th player in team history to suit up for at least 800 games with the CH.

262 – Number of days that have elapsed since Ben Scrivens last tended goal in an NHL game prior to Tuesday night’s contest in the Sunshine State. When he made his Canadiens debut against the Panthers, Scrivens was competing in the NHL ranks for the first time since April 11. At that time, he was a member of the Edmonton Oilers.

1 – A member of the Panthers between 2011 and 2015, Tomas Fleischmann made his first appearance at BB&T Center since the Florida-based franchise traded him to the Anaheim Ducks on February 28.

2:01 – Time that elapsed in the first period on Tuesday night before Ben Scrivens was forced to make his first save in a Canadiens uniform. He denied Panthers forward Jussi Jokinen, keeping things scoreless early on in the opening frame.

7 – Number of consecutive games in which captain Max Pacioretty was held without a goal, before breaking that streak on Tuesday night with the opening marker at 12:39 of the first period. Pacioretty’s team-leading 15th goal of the year was also his first on the road since November 25.

10 – Number of times P.K. Subban has dropped the gloves over the course of his NHL career, adding to that tally by squaring off against Panthers centerman Derek MacKenzie  during the first period on Tuesday night in Sunrise.
