1 - Goal for Jarome Iginla, his first of the season, on a second period power play.

2 - Montreal goals in 32 seconds near the end of the first period. Scott Gomez, at 18:47, and Guillaume Latendresse, at 19:19, scored to erase a 1-0 Flames lead.

2 - Goals for Flames forward Eric Nystrom. He was initially credited with three goals but the third goal was later awarded to Staffan Kronwall, his first as a Flame. Add in a fight with Kyle Chipchura for good measure and that's a pretty good night's work.

3 - Former Flames in the Montreal line-up. Mike Cammalleri, Roman Hamrlik and Travis Moen.

5 - Number of goals with the man advantage for the Flames in three games this season. They were 1-1 against the Habs and are now 5-7 to start the season.

5 - Straight losses for Montreal in Calgary

5 - Number of shots for Jarome Iginla.

11 - Face-offs won by the Habs in the first period. They lost just four, for a 73 per cent success rate on the dots. The Flames got better as the night wore on and finished with a 44 per cent success rate, a big improvement over the first period.

17 - Years since the Calgary Flames won the first three games of the season

18 - Number of Flames players who have collected at least in point in the Flames first three games of the season. That would be all the skaters who have dressed for all three games. Staffan Kronwall was the last player to pick up a point, assisting on Eric Nystrom's first period tally.

29 - And a little bit, actually 29:36. The amount of ice time Flames defenceman Jay Bouwmeester was averaging heading into the game against Montreal.

100 - The number of times, including tonight's game, that the Flames and Habs have played each other since the Atlanta Flames were born in 1972-73.

345 - Number of consecutive NHL games for Flames defenceman Jay Bouwmeester, who currently holds the league's longest ironman streak.
