Highlights Canadiens - Flames
1-Players in the Habs lineup on Sunday with previous NHL outdoor game experience with James Wisniewski having soaked it all in while with the Blackhawks at the 2009 NHL Winter Classic.

2,647-Days since Canada hosted an NHL outdoor game, dating back to when the Oilers hosted the Habs at Commonwealth Stadium in the first-ever Heritage Classic Game in 2003.

20-Students at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who have reported their missing uniforms since the Flames hit the ice in their retro striped jerseys honoring the Calgary Tigers who played their last game in 1935-36.
