by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL -- Here's a numerical look at the match-up between the Habs and Flyers at the Bell Centre on Saturday night. 

16 – Number of days the Habs will be out of commission during the Olympic break, embarking on the longest mid-season layoff since NHLers first started participating in the Games in 1998.

900 – Number of times Hal Gill has suited up in an NHL uniform during his 12 year career, doing so for the first time on October 17, 1997 against the Canucks. 

5 – Number of seasons since the Canadiens last played a back-to-back series in less than 48 hours against the Flyers, dating back to the clutching and grabing era of 2003-04.
4 – Number of seconds following the opening puck drop before Ryan O’Byrne and Ian Laperriere dropped the gloves for the first tilt of the night.

9 – Seconds of power play time needed for the Canadiens to score with the man advantage following Darroll Powe’s penalty for hitting Tomas Plekanec from behind in the third period.
3 – Multi-point games posted by Roman Hamrlik this season, including his two assists against Philly on Saturday night and on December 7 against these same Flyers squad.

2 – Penalties drawn by P.K. Subban in his home ice debut for the Canadiens on a night that also saw his new fans shower him with chants of his name, much to the delight of his parents Karl and Maria who were in attendance.

2 – Length in games of Subban’s current point streak, spanning his entire NHL career, with the young defenseman having picked up an assist in each of the Habs' back-to-back games against Philadelphia.

– Canadiens fans not totally feeling Subban these days.

64 – Percentage of the Canadiens’ 28 shots on the night coming from the Scott Gomez-Brian Gionta-Tom Pyatt line, who combined to fire 18 pucks in the Flyers’ direction in the outing.
