MONTREAL – Here's a numerical look at Monday night's game between the Canadiens and the Canucks.
600 – Number of games Tomas Fleischmann has played over the course of his NHL career, including Monday night’s game at the Bell Centre against the Vancouver Canucks. The 31-year-old winger, who made the Canadiens’ roster out of training camp, previously played for the Washington Capitals, Colorado Avalanche, Florida Panthers and the Anaheim Ducks.
7 – Number of times this season in which Michel Therrien’s troops have given up the first goal of the game, including Monday night’s tilt in Montreal. It’s the second time it happened against the Canucks during the 2015-16 campaign. In late October, Jared McCann opened the scoring, before Adam Cracknell broke things open at the Bell Centre.
1 – Defenseman Tom Gilbert picked up his first point of the year on Monday night by registering an assist on Lars Eller’s goal during the second period. That means that Greg Pateryn is the lone Habs player still looking to get on the scoresheet this season.
4 – Number of goals – out of the six Lars Eller has scored so far this year – that have come at the Bell Centre, including his most recent tally on Monday night. It also just happened to be a short-handed goal.
5 – Number of consecutive games in which Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher have each amassed at least one point. By lighting the lamp on a sequence that Gallagher began, Pacioretty kept his streak alive that started back on November 5 against the New York Islanders.
5 – Number of Canadiens players who registered at least three hits each against the Canucks on Monday night, as Devante Smith-Pelly, Torrey Mitchell, Greg Pateryn, P.K. Subban and Tom Gilbert all threw their weight around during the tilt.
