MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Game 2 between the Habs and the Rangers on Monday night at the Bell Centre.

1 – Career NHL playoff starts for Dustin Tokarski. Make no mistake about it, the 25 year-old is a proven clutch performer, having won league titles in Midget AAA, the WHL, the AHL, plus a gold medal as a member of Team Canada’s World Junior Championships squad.

0.944 – In Tokarski’s last playoff run, for the Norfolk Admirals of the AHL, the Humboldt, SK native stonewalled the opposition by saving over 94% of shots faced and going 12-2 en route to the 2012 Calder Cup. Meanwhile, Carey Price put up a 15-6 record and a 0.936 save percentage in his Calder Cup year with Hamilton back in 2007.

12 – Max Pacioretty’s goal, scored six minutes into the first period, came on his team’s 12th shot attempt of the game. Meanwhile, the Rangers were only able to direct the puck toward the Montreal net twice in that span.

40 – Number of days since Alex Galchenyuk last suited up for the Habs. The forward returned to the lineup after missing his team’s 12 playoff games so far with a lower-body injury.

3 – Hits for David Desharnais after 40 minutes. The shifty centerman is more known for dodging bodychecks than for throwing them, but played with a physical edge on Monday while leading Habs pivots in even strength ice time.

40 - Number of shots for Rene Bourque since the start of the playoffs. The winger becomes the second skater on the Habs to reach the 40-shot plateau, after Max Pacioretty.
