The Numbers Game: February 2, 2016

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

PHILADELPHIA -- Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game in Philadelphia against the Flyers.

53 – The number donned by the Canadiens newest addition Lucas Lessio, who became only the sixth Habs player in team history to sport the number ‘53’ including Andre Racicot, Rory Fitzpatrick, Sylvain Blouin, Doug Janik and Ryan White.

339 - The number of days that have passed since Lucas Lessio played his last game in the NHL when his Arizona Coyotes faced-off against the Boston Bruins on February 28, 2015. In just under a year in the American Hockey League the Maple, Ontario native amassed 21 points in 42 games.

48 – Total days of action missed by defenseman Tom Gilbert who made his return to the lineup for the first time since suffering a lower-body injury on December 22 against the Minnesota Wild. In his first game back Gilbert registered….

1 – A number that reappeared several times on Tuesday’s night of firsts, as Lucas Lessio played his first game as a hab, Tom Gilbert played his first game of 2016, and Mike Condon faced the Flyers for the first time.

10 – Number of players who have made their Canadiens debuts this season, as Lucas Lesssio added his name to a list including Michael McCarron, Bud Holloway, Charles Hudon, Mark Barberio, Daniel Carr, Paul Byron, Tomas Fleischmann, Mike Condon and Ben Scrivens.

17 - Number of power play assists obtained by P. K. Subban for this season, which has the Habs All-Star tied for the league lead in that category along with Erik Karlsson of the Senators.

11 - Number of seasons in which Andrei Markov has scored at least 25 points, as the veteran defender collected his 25th point of the season with his power play goal late in the first period. The last time Markov failed to reach the 25-point threshold was during the 2001-02 season.

20 – The percentage of Jeff Petry’s goals that have come during the 2015-16 season, after the rearguard recorded his fifth of the season early in the second period with a laser shot from the point.

29 - The number of games in between tonight’s contest and November 20, 2015 against the Islanders, which is the last time that two or more Habs defensemen scored goals in the same game, as the streak was snapped Tuesday night in Philadelphia where both Andrei Markov and Jeff Petry lit the lamp.
