The Numbers Game: Game #2 - May 3, 2015

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

MONTREAL – Here's a numerical look at Game 2 between the Habs and Lightning at the Bell Centre on Sunday night.

1 – Number of career NHL playoff goals scored by defenseman Jeff Petry, who lit the postseason lamp for the very first time on Sunday to open the scoring against Tampa, eight games after making his spring hockey debut.

11 – Number of Canadiens players who have now found the back of the net this spring, as Petry became just the latest Hab to pitch in with a postseason marker, joining fellow goalscorers Max Pacioretty, Dale Weise, P.K. Subban, Tomas Plekanec, Torrey Mitchell, Brian Flynn, Tom Gilbert, Lars Eller, Brendan Gallagher, and Alex Galchenyuk.

2 – Number of times the Canadiens have scored a first-period goal this postseason, after Petry beat Lightning netminder Ben Bishop 7:20 into the opening frame, achieving the feat – and also getting onto the board first – for the first time since Game 6 in Ottawa.

79 – Number of career postseason games played by defenseman Andrei Markov, who matched his jersey number in that capacity on Sunday evening.

50 – Number of career postseason games played by Carey Price, who hit the half-century mark on Sunday at the Bell Centre to remain fourth all-time in Canadiens history, while inching closer to franchise leaders Jacques Plante (90), Ken Dryden (112) and Patrick Roy (114).

18 – Number of combined penalties called between both teams on Sunday night – the highest total in a Canadiens' game this spring – with 13 going against the Habs and just five against the Lightning. The Bolts meanwhile were able to capitalize on four of their opportunities, while Montreal was held scoreless with the man advantage.
