OTTAWA – Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's preseason game in Ottawa between the Habs and the Senators.
- Percentage of this year’s preseason games the Canadiens played in Canada. After traveling as far as Chicago last October to tune up against the eventual Stanley Cup champs, the Habs went on an all-Canadian preseason tour in 2015, hosting four games at the Bell Centre, in addition to visiting the Leafs in Toronto, the Sens in Ottawa, and hosting the Penguins in Quebec City.0
- Number of goals allowed by Canadiens goaltender Mike Condon over his first two career games of NHL preseason action against Washington and Toronto. Over 92:50 of ice time, the 25-year-old netminder turned aside all 38 shots he faced during training camp. Condon was in Ottawa in Saturday, but Dustin Tokarski played the entire game.13
- Number of different players who combined to score the Canadiens’ 16 goals over this year’s seven preseason games. Newcomers Zack Kassian, Tomas Fleischmann, and Alexander Semin all notched their first tallies as members of the Habs, while Dale Weise and Alex Galchenyuk were the only Canadiens players to light the lamp more than once during the preseason campaign.3
- Number of preseason goals scored by Weise following Saturday’s first-period equalizer, good enough to lead his teammates in the category.50%
- Percentage of power play opportunities the Canadiens took full advantage of on Saturday night, as Weise and Galchenyuk added a pair of power play markers to their preseason totals.33:02
- Total number of preseason minutes played by new Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty, who returned to action from an offseason knee injury in time for the Habs’ final two tune-ups, both against the Sens.7
- Number of times, including over the preseason, the Canadiens will meet the Senators in 2015-16. Facing Ottawa more than any other team this season, the Habs will have plenty of opportunities to ensure the two clubs’ budding rivalry from the 2013 and 2015 playoffs doesn’t die.
