The Numbers Game: January 26, 2016

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

MONTREAL -- Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

896 -- Number of career NHL games Andrei Markov has now played with the Canadiens, tying him for third place with Patrice Brisebois for the most among Habs defensemen on Tuesday -- 11th across all positions.

2 -- Number of players league wide who have taken at least one shot on goal in every game so far this season. Habs captain Max Pacioretty shares that distinction with Canucks forward Daniel Sedin, the former having kept his streak alive on Tuesday against Columbus.

1 -- Number of times the Blue Jackets and Canadiens have met twice in two nights throughout their respective histories. The closest the two clubs had come previously was in 2015, having met in Montreal on February 21 and then again five days later in Columbus on February 26.

14 -- Number of additional man-games already lost to injury after just 50 games this year (102), versus the entire 2014-15 season (88). Daniel Carr was among the latest Habs to be bitten by the injury bug as the club announced on Tuesday that the 24-year-old will be sidelined for a period of three months with a right knee injury suffered on Monday. Max Pacioretty also left the game during the second period against Columbus and did not return for the third.

-- Number of career games Ben Scrivens had played with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Los Angeles Kings, and Edmonton Oilers before making his Bell Centre debut for the Habs on Tuesday.

6 -- Number of shots Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk had fired on goal over the first 43:45 of action on Tuesday -- tops among his teammates -- before beating Blue Jackets netminder Joonas Korpisalo in the third.

0 -- Percentage of plays which underwent review on Tuesday that got overturned by the officials. A second-period goal by Devante Smith-Pelly, challenged by Columbus, was upheld as on-side, while an apparent second-period goal by Brendan Gallagher was determined to not have fully crossed the goal line.

7 -- Number of days before the Canadiens are back in action, as NHL clubs now begin heading into the All-Star break. While P.K. Subban will represent the Habs in Nashville for All-Star Weekend, the rest of the team will hit the ice next Tuesday, February 2, against the Flyers in Philadelphia.
