3-Consecutive seasons in which Tomas Plekanec has now potted at least a pair of shorthanded goals.
 
6-Goals assisted by Tom Kostopoulos in 2008-09, matching the rugged winger's total in 67 games last season.
 
52-Pounds given up to Anthony Stewart by Steve Begin in his tussle with the Panthers center in the second period.
