The Numbers Game: September 22, 2015

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL – Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's preseason-opening game between the Habs and the Maple Leafs in Montreal

136 – Number of days since the Habs last faced an opponent on Bell Centre ice prior to Tuesday’s puck drop, dating back to a Game 5 postseason tilt against the Lightning on May 9, 2015.
15 – Number of days left on the training camp calendar, with just over two weeks remaining before the Canadiens head to Toronto to officially kick of the 2015-16 campaign against the Leafs on October 7.
150 – Average number of NHL games played by the Canadiens players in uniform on Tuesday night, led by veteran Tomas Plekanec’s 761 total games of experience.
5 – Number of times Mark Barberio has suited up for a game at the Bell Centre for a regular season game in his career, with the Montreal native finally getting a chance to hit the ice as part of the home team on Tuesday against the Leafs. 

7 – Number of years since Greg Pateryn was drafted by the Maple Leafs in the fifth round, just a few weeks before being traded to Montreal in a deal that sent Mikhail Grabovski to Toronto.

11 – Number of saves made by Carey Price during his time between the pipes on Tuesday night, following up his Hart, Ted Lindsay, Jennings and Vezina-worthy 2014-15 campaign with a perfect preseason opener before being replaced mid-way through the second period by Zachary Fucale.

5 – Number of hits dished out by 6-foot-6 centerman Michael McCarron in the game, tying Pateryn and Jeff Petry for the team lead in that category on Tuesday night.
