The Numbers Game: March 29, 2016

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game against the Red Wings in Montreal.

100 – Number of consecutive games Alex Galchenyuk has suited up for with the Canadiens, including Tuesday night’s tilt against the Detroit Red Wings at the Bell Centre. Galchenyuk last missed a game on February 21, 2015.

5 – Red Wings forward Anthony Mantha played his first career NHL game in Montreal on Tuesday night, going up against the club his grandfather André Pronovost played for during five seasons between 1956 and 1961.

7 – Number of shots the Canadiens fired in Red Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek’s direction before he was replaced by Jimmy Howard at the 11:25 mark of the opening frame. Mrazek had given up two goals by then, with markers coming courtesy of Max Pacioretty and Paul Byron.

5 – In his fifth game since being recalled from the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps, defenseman Joel Hanley registered his fifth point, blasting the point shot that Pacioretty re-directed past Mrazek in the first period for his 26th goal of the year.

2 – Number of goals Paul Byron has scored over the last six days against the Red Wings, picking up right where he left off last Thursday night in Michigan with his 11th goal of the year.

27 – Number of penalty minutes that the referees handed out to Alexei Emelin and Justin Abdelkader during the second period following the Russian rearguard’s hard hit on Red Wings young gun Dylan Larkin. Emelin was given 10 minutes in penalties (5 for interference and 5 for fighting), while Abdelkader was given 17 (5 for fighting, 2 for instigating and a 10-minute misconduct).

44 – Number of seconds that elapsed in the second period between goals by Gustav Nyquist (12:33) and Mantha (13:17) that let the visitors tie things up 2-2, before Mike Green gave Detroit the lead with their third power play marker of the frame.

3 – Sven Andrighetto finished Tuesday night’s contest with a goal and an assist, his third multi-point game of the 2015-16 campaign and his first since March 8 against the Dallas Stars.

4 – Number of multi-goal games Pacioretty has registered this season, adding to that tally by scoring twice on Tuesday night against Detroit. It's the Canadiens captain's first multi-goal effort since February 27 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
