0 – Number of minor penalties handed out in the opening 20 minutes for a second straight game. The two well-behaved squads each picked up 5 minute fighting majors in the first period, after Gregory Stewart dropped the gloves to throw down with Boston’s Guillaume Lefebvre.

82 – Percentage of faceoffs won by Tomas Plekanec, with the fourth year pivot winning nine of his 11 draws on the night.

7 – Shots fired in Tim Thomas’ direction by speedy center Scott Gomez in 65 minutes of play, adding another to his game-high tally in the shootout.
