MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Sunday night's game between the Canadiens and the Islanders at the Bell Centre.



8 – The number of Canadiens players who have worn the number 42, as Sven Andrighetto became the 8th player in team history to don the digits. The Swiss forward played his first NHL game with the new number on Sunday night, a change from the number 58 worn during his most recent call up to the big leagues. Jarred Tinordi, who now wears number 24, was the last Canadien to wear number 42.

3 - Number of times this season the Canadiens play back-to-back games against the same teams, including two-game series against the Islanders (20 and 22 November), the Devils (27 and 28 November) and the Blue Jackets (25 and Jan 26).

1 – The number of teams in the NHL that Tomas Plekanec has averaged more than one point per game against in his career, tallying 42 points in 40 games against the Islanders including points in three games against New York this season. 

7 – The number of consecutive games Brendan Gallagher added his name to the scoresheet before the streak was snapped Sunday night, the longest point streak in his career eclipsing his previous career high of five games.

100 – Percentage of games against the Islanders this season that Tomas Fleischmann has earned at least one point, collecting an assist in the first matchup and adding goals in the second and third contests.

1027 – Number of days that have passed since Tomas Fleischmann scored the only other shorthanded goal of his career on January 29, 2013, as the Czech forward put the Canadiens ahead in the second period with his shorthanded marker.

5 – The number of consecutive wins on home ice to start the season for Carey Price, as the reigning league MVP has won his first five starts in front of the home crowd at the Bell Centre.

10 – P.K. Subban’s ranking on the Canadiens all-time scoring list for defensemen, as Subban picked up two assists to pass Jean-Guy Talbot for tenth all time in Canadiens history with 246 career points.

21.4 – Percentage of points accumulated by Dale Weise this season that have come on the power play, as the Habs’ forward added a power play assist to his totals Sunday night on David Desharnais’ goal with the man advantage.

300 – Number of career points for captain Max Pacioretty. He notched his 300th point tonight when he scored his team's fourth goal into an empty net.
