The Numbers Game: March 28, 2015

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

MONTREAL – Here's a numerical look at Saturday's game between the Habs and the Panthers.



784 – Number of days which have elapsed since P.K. Subban last missed a game with the Canadiens, making his 200th consecutive start with the Habs on Saturday at the Bell Centre. The last time the star defenseman was missing in action dates back to January 30, 2013.

18 – Number of career goals Lars Eller has scored on Saturday nights, making it his most productive day of the week by far, followed by Tuesday (12). Saturday night was alright for scoring once again against the Panthers, as Eller lit the lamp to get the Habs on the board late in the first.

75 – Number of career NHL points for Jeff Petry after the 27-year-old defenseman hit the three-quarter century mark on Saturday night with an assist on Eller’s opening goal – his first point as a Hab since being acquired by Montreal at the NHL trade deadline.

22 – Number of Canadiens players who have registered at least one point this season after Petry became the latest Hab to join that list.

66 – Percentage of the NHL’s “Mitchells” who were on the Bell Centre ice on Saturday. Canadiens forward Torrey Mitchell shared the ice opposite Panthers defenseman Willie Mitchell, while the league’s third Mitchell, John, plays for Colorado.

4 – Number of Habs players who have now scored at least 20 goals this season. Alex Galchenyuk became just the latest to join the select group on Saturday night after beating Roberto Luongo with a precise shot from up close late in the second.

54 – Percentage of career points Andrei Markov has registered on the power play, picking up a 262nd point with the man advantage after assisting on Galchenyuk’s second period equalizer.

5 – Number of hits dished out by Greg Pateryn on Saturday night – the most among his teammates – including a bone-crushing check on Jimmy Hayes early in the first.

75 – Percentage of the Canadiens' four games against the Panthers so far this season which have required extra time to be solved, after the two teams were tied at two goals apiece through 60 minutes on Saturday.
