The Numbers Game: March 24, 2015

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
NASHVILLE – Here's a numerical look at Tuesday's game between the Habs and the Predators in Nashville.

394 – Number of games in which Michel Therrien has been behind the Canadiens’ bench, tying Cecil Hart in that category for fourth spot in team history. Therrien now trails Scotty Bowman (634), Dick Irvin (896) and Toe Blake (914) in that department.

6 – Number of NHL teams against whom Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau has registered at least one point per game over the course of his career, including the Flames, the Stars, the Islanders, the Rangers, the Maple Leafs, and the Predators. Parenteau boasts nine points in eight games against Nashville.

4 – Number of games Torrey Mitchell was forced to sit out with an upper-body injury before returning to the Canadiens’ lineup on Tuesday night in Nashville.
343:05 – The length of the longest shutout streak in Canadiens history, which was strung together by George Hainsworth back in 1929 when he registered four straight shutouts. Carey Price’s shutout streak came to an end on Tuesday night in Nashville when Mattias Ekholm scored at the 9:10 mark of the opening period. It was the first time Price had conceded a goal in 166:10 of play.

3 – Number of seasons in which Canadiens forward Jacob De La Rose and Predators forward Filip Forsberg played with the same squad in Leksand, Sweden. It was the first time the two young guns had gone head-to-head in the NHL on Tuesday night.

3 – Number of times over the course of his NHL career that Carey Price has gone at least 150 straight minutes without giving up a goal. The Anahim Lake, BC native set a personal record on Tuesday with his latest shutout streak which ended up lasting 166:10 before Ekholm lit the lamp to open the scoring.

59 – Percentage of Brendan Gallagher's 22 goals in 2014-15 that have been scored in the second period alone. The feisty right-winger added to that tally on Tuesday night by burying a loose puck in the slot past Predators netminder Pekka Rinne. Thirteen of those goals have come during the second frame, while four of Gallagher's other markers have come in the first period and five in the third.

21 – Number of goals scored this season by the Canadiens in which both Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais picked up at least one point on the play. That makes the Pacioretty-Desharnais duo the CH's most productive pair. Pacioretty picked up an assist on Desharnais' 13th goal of the season on Tuesday night.

17 – Number of times since 1967 that the Canadiens have managed to register at least 100 points in a single season. Michel Therrien's contingent became the first team in 2014-15 to hit triple digits in points as they left Nashville with 100 points in the standings.
