The Numbers Game - Dec. 7, 2009
378 – Number of seconds into the game before either team registered a shot on goal, with the Canadiens leading the Flyers 1-0 in shots heading into the first commercial break, more than six minutes into the contest.

100 – Career assists now in the books for Laraque, who also dropped the gloves with Riley Cote earlier in the game.
4 – Number of hits thrown by Max Pacioretty on Monday night, with the power-forward-in-the-making also firing a team-high three shots on goal in the contest.
50 – Percentage of Marc-Andre Bergeron’s goals that have come on the power play this year, potting three of his six markers with the man advantage to date.
14 – Consecutive stops made by Carey Price on Tuesday night after surrendering a goal to the always popular Daniel Briere on the first shot he faced.
10 – Game-high number of shots blocked by Roman Hamrlik, adding two assists and enjoying 23:59 minutes of ice time to earn first star honors against the Flyers.
