The Numbers Game: March 12, 2016

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game against the Minnesota Wild at the Bell Centre.
 
274 -- Number of consecutive games P.K. Subban had suited up for prior to missing Saturday night’s action at the Bell Centre. Sitting out a game for the first time since January 30, 2013, the Canadiens’ longest active ironman streak was snapped opposite the Wild.

4 -- Number of remaining Habs who have played in all 69 games so far this season. With Subban out, that list is now comprised of Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec, and Andrei Markov.

7 -- Number of players on Saturday night’s roster who were also in the lineup for the Canadiens’ season opener on October 7, 2015 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto -- four forwards (Pacioretty, Plekanec, Galchenyuk and Torrey Mitchell), two defensemen (Markov and Alexei Emelin), and goaltender Mike Condon.

2,062 -- Difference in number of games of NHL experience between Minnesota (3,215) and Montreal's (1,153) starting lineups.

1 -- Number of career NHL games Darren Dietz now has under his belt, after making his Canadiens debut on Saturday. The 22-year-old defenseman was an emergency call-up for the Habs on Friday afternoon.

4 -- Number of points registered by Mark Barberio over the last four games. With his first period goal against the Wild, the Montreal native now sits just one point shy of the career-high 10 he picked up during his 2013-14 season in Tampa -- only this time 21 games sooner.

490 -- Number of days since the Minnesota Wild last visited the Bell Centre -- an emotional night during which the final member of the Canadiens’ legendary Big Three, Guy Lapointe, saw his jersey retired on November 8, 2014.

37 -- Number of hits dished out by the Habs on Saturday night, to just 18 by the Wild. Dietz notably served up four in his NHL debut.
