CALGARY - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday's game between the Canadiens and the Flames.
100 – Number of games Brandon Prust has suited up for in a Canadiens uniform, including Tuesday night’s tilt in Calgary. Prust, who joined the Habs ahead of the 2012-13 campaign, also enjoyed two stints with the Flames over the course of his NHL career.
5 – Number of penalties assessed to both teams combined during the first period of Tuesday night’s game at the Scotiabank Saddledome. That was strikingly similar to what transpired on Monday night in Edmonton, when the Canadiens and Oilers combined for six minors during the opening frame. On this night, the Habs headed to the penalty box three times, while the Flames were penalized just twice.
3 – Number of organizations former Habs defenseman Raphael Diaz has been a part of over the course of his NHL career, the latest of which is the Calgary Flames. Diaz, who did not suit up on Tuesday night, has also donned the colors of the Vancouver Canucks and New York Rangers.
1 – Number of goals Tom Gilbert has tallied in a Canadiens uniform, the first of which came on Tuesday night in Calgary. Gilbert’s marker tied the game at one during the second period.
4 – Number of consecutive periods in which the Canadiens failed to light the lamp over the course of the last two games, until Tom Gilbert scored during the second frame on Tuesday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Gilbert was the first Canadiens player to score a goal since Max Pacioretty got on the board against the New York Rangers in the third period last Saturday night in Montreal.
24 – Number of shots Carey Price turned aside through 40 minutes of play on Tuesday night in Calgary as the Canadiens were outshot by a 25-11 margin after two periods. Bombarded by shots from every conceivable angle throughout the tilt, Price ended the game with 37 stops.
