MONTREAL – Here's a numerical look at Thursday night's game between the Canadiens and the Islanders.
44 – Number of seconds needed by Jean Beliveau to score three goals during a single power play on November 5, 1955, single-handedly forcing the NHL to change its rules to allow punished players to leave the box after a power play goal against.
8 – Number of goals scored by Dale Weise through 15 games so far in 2015-16 following his first period power play marker, now sitting just two shy of the career-high 10 he potted last year in 79 games.
1 – Weise’s current rank on the Canadiens’ current goal scoring leaderboard, needing just two goals to catch NHL leader Jamie Benn for first in the league in that category.
5 – Number of shots allowed by the Canadiens in the opening frame, the fourth time they’ve held an opponent to five or fewer shots in a period this season.
13 – Number of power play goals racked up by the Habs this year, now sitting just one back of the Bruins for tops in the league in that category.
100 – Percentage of opposing power plays killed off by the Canadiens’ penalty killers at the Bell Centre this season, going 23-for-23 when shorthanded at home, including a perfect 3-for-3 against the Islanders on Thursday night.
14 – Number of points accrued by Tomas Plekanec on the season, following his empty net goal in the third period, giving him sole possession of first place on the team’s points leaderboard.
6 – Number of points racked up by Tomas Fleischmann in the last four games, counting two goals and four assists in that span after setting the table for Deshanais’ third period goal.
0 – Number of regulation losses suffered by rookie netminder Mike Condon in six career NHL starts, picking up the fifth win of his young career on Thursday night.
1 – The number of times the Canadiens have won at least 12 of their first 15 games in a season for the first time in franchise history.
