MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game against the Dallas Stars at the Bell Centre.
5 -- Number of Habs who have played all 67 games so far this season. Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec, P.K. Subban and Andrei Markov saw their numbers in that category take a hit on Tuesday as Lars Eller missed his first outing of the year with a lower body injury.
115 -- Number of consecutive games Eller had played prior to missing Tuesday’s action -- good for the third-longest ironman streak on the current roster, behind just Plekanec (154) and Subban (272).
2 -- Number of Habs who made their Bell Centre debuts for the home side opposite the Stars. Stefan Matteau and Mike Brown both took their first strides in Montreal after being acquired at the NHL trade deadline on February 29.
11 -- Number of games separating Galchenyuk’s two most recent assists. Galchenyuk’s first-period helper to Pacioretty was the first since February 9 for the forward who has been enjoying impressive offensive production of late.
1.29 -- Number of goals per game Galchenyuk has averaged since February 24. With his second-period tally on Tuesday, the 22-year-old now counts nine in his last seven outings.
00:36 -- Number of seconds separating the second period’s first and second goals on Tuesday night. Montreal and Dallas exchanged a pair of early markers in the middle frame’s opening minute, as Jason Spezza gave the Stars a short-lived 2-1 lead at 00:17 before Galchenyuk replied with the equalizer at 00:53.
6 -- Number of games it took newcomer Phillip Danault to score his first goal as a Hab. The Victoriaville, QC native lit the lamp before the home crowd just over a week after earning his first point as a Hab, on February 29 in San Jose.
9 -- Number of hits dished out by Mike Brown against the Stars on Tuesday night, leading all players across both teams in that category.
