by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL -- Here's a numerical look at the Canadiens-Hurricanes matchup on Saturday at the Bell Centre.

1-Times Alex Auld has ever started consecutive games for the Canadiens, with the veteran goalie having also gotten the nod on Thursday night against the Leafs.

Highlights Canadiens - Hurricanes
11-Years since a defenseman last wore the No. 55 for the Canadiens prior to newcomer Brent Sopel, dating back to when Russian rearguard Igor Ulanov was patrolling the Habs blue line.

39-Difference in ages between 18-year-old Hurricane’s rookie sensation Jeff Skinner and the ageless 57-year-old, no-nonsense principal from Springfield Elementary School with whom he shares his name—Seymour  Skinner of The Simpsons fame.

54:10-Time that elapsed on the clock before the Canadiens were graced by their first power play of the night, with Skinner being sent off for holding with 5:50 to go in the third period.

1-Number of NHL seasons in which Tomas Plekanec has failed to reach the 20-goal plateau, with his rookie campaign in 2005-06 being the time he didn’t reach the mark.

11-Times the Canadiens have come back to win this season on a night they failed to opening the scoring.

0-Games the Habs have lost this season when Lars Eller finds the back of the net, with Habs owning a perfect 4-0 mark following the rookie’s potting of his fourth goal of the year

18-Assists amassed in each of his last three seasons by Andrei Kostitsyn, who extended his point-streak to three games by setting up Eller’s goal in the first period.
