100 seasons of shutouts
Here’s a numerical look at the Canadiens’ shutouts over the last 100 seasons.
486 - Regular season shutouts recorded by Canadiens goaltenders since 1909.
309 - Consecutive minutes that Bill Durnan held off the opposition in 1948-49.
54 - Times the Habs have blanked the Toronto Maple Leafs, making them the club’s favorite shutout victim. Second best? The Boston Bruins, just one shy of the Leafs’ total.
41 - Times the Canadiens have held their opponents off the scoresheet in at least two straight games.
36 - Canadiens goaltenders who have recorded a shutout, beginning with Georges Vezina and going all the way to Carey Price.
22 - Whitewashes registered by George Hainsworth in just 44 games in the 1928-29 season.
6 - Seasons in which a Habs netminder has notched at least 10 shutouts over the course of the campaign. Ken Dryden was the last to realize the feat, doing so in 1976-77.
1 - Goaltenders to have blanked the opposition and scored a goal in the same game. That honor goes to Jose Theodore, who did so against the New York Islanders on January 2, 2001.
