by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
Here’s a numerical look at the third meeting of the season between the Canadiens and Maple Leafs on Thursday night at the Bell Centre.

11 - Habs and Leafs legends who took part in the pre-game ceremony honoring the longtime rivalry between the Original Six clubs.

458 - Points accumulated by Canadiens against the Leafs in 346 career matchups on home ice, thanks to the Habs’ 206-94-43-3 lifetime record versus Toronto.

15 - Swiss-born players to have ever played an NHL game, a list that includes David Aebischer, Mark Streit and now Yannick Weber, who made his NHL debut against the Leafs.

8 - Goals scored by Maxim Lapierre in only 37 games this season, already eclipsing his career-high of seven notched in 2007-08.

364 - Career points piled up by Patrice Brisebois with the Habs, surpassing Jean-Claude Tremblay for the No. 5 spot on the Canadiens’ all-time points list for defensemen.

- Combined penalty minutes doled out on Thursday night, including no less than eight 10-minute misconduct calls in what was a raucous night at the Bell Centre, to say the least.

- Points amassed by Andrei Kostitsyn over his last seven games versus Toronto.

- Love lost between ex-teammates Sergei Kostitsyn and Mikhail Grabovski.
