Here’s a numerical look at the Canadiens-Predators matchup on Thursday night at the Bell Centre.
33-Points piled up by Robert Lang at the expense of the Predators over the course of his career.
7-Consecutive starts made by Jaroslav Halak, the second-longest stretch of his career behind only his nine-game run to close the 2006-07 season.
7-Years since the Canadiens have failed to pick up at least one point against the Predators, with the Habs going 5-0-1 against Nashville since a loss to the Preds on March 23, 2002.
1-Shots taken by the Habs in the opening 14 minutes of the second period, with their only puck fired on net being Andrei Kostitsyn’s 15th goal of the season.
6-Length in games of the elder Kostitsyn’s current point streak, the longest of his career to date.
4-Games played by Francis Bouillon for the Predators during his brief stint in Nashville back in 2002-03, before returning to the Habs that same season.
135-Games played for the Canadiens by Radek Bonk, who was welcomed with the Bell Centre’s standard chorus of boos whenever he touched the puck on Thursday night.
