by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
VANCOUVER -- Here's a numerical look at the Habs-Canucks matchup at Rogers Arena on Tuesday night.

15 – Number of American-born skaters who have collected at least 500 assists over the course of their NHL careers, including Alaska native Scott Gomez, who picked up No. 500 against the Canucks.

Highlights Canadiens - Canucks
12 – Number of assists compiled by Benoit Pouliot so far this season, topping his previous career high set last year with the Wild and Habs.

0 – Number of Canucks players with their names stitched to their vintage 40th anniversary jerseys on Tuesday night, making it that much easier easier to play for the crest on the front and not the name on the back.
2 – Number of goals allowed by the Canucks in the first period against the Canadiens, after giving up just 30 goals against in their first 60 games this season.

32 – Number of days since Andrei Kostitsyn last lit the lamp for the Canadiens, with the shifty Belarusian breaking out of his 12-game slump in the second period against the Canucks.

5 – Team-high number of shots blocked by Hal Gill in the outing, giving the rugged blue-liner 118 blocks on the season to date.

6 – Number of Habs who have reached the 30-point benchmark so far this season, with Kostitsyn becoming the most recent player to add his name to that list.

8 – Consecutive number of games the Canadiens had lost in Vancouver heading into Tuesday’s tilt, breaking the 11-year streak with a win at Rogers Arena.

2 – Number of games in as many opportunities in 2010-11 in which the Habs have come out on the winning end against the Canucks, blanking Vancouver 2-0 at the Bell Centre on November 9 before posting a 3-2 win on Tuesday night.

 14 – Number of different Canadiens players who finished their nights on the positive side of the plus/minus differential.
