The Numbers Game: Feb. 3, 2009
Here is a numerical look at the Canadiens-Penguins matchup on Tuesday night at the Bell Centre.

6-Habs players to have now hit double digits in goals this season following Maxim Lapierre scoring his 10th goal of the year in the second period.

46-Length in games of the goalless drought snapped by Roman Hamrlik when he beat Marc-Andre Fleury, with Hamrlik having hit the dry spell after scoring in two of the first three games of the season.

9-Minutes needed by the Penguins to register their first shot on Carey Price on Tuesday night.

9-Shorthanded goals scored by the Habs this season, the second-highest total in the league behind only the Flyers, who lead the way with 13.

8-Shorthanded goals scored by Christopher Higgins since 2005-06, the most of any Hab since  the lockout.

3-Habs players to have not missed a game this season following the loss of durable Robert Lang. A shrinking list that now includes Tomas Plekanec, Alex Kovalev and Andrei Markov.

190-Games coached for the Canadiens by current Penguins coach Michel Therrien during his parts of three seasons spent behind the Montreal bench from 2000-01 through 2002-03.
