The Numbers game - March 11, 2010
16-Point advantage enjoyed by the Habs Benoit Pouliot over his namesake Marc Pouliot of the Oilers, with the Canadiens winger picking up his 24th point of the season by setting up linemate Brian Gionta’s first period goal.
1:52-Time spent in Oilers zone by Mathieu Darche, Roman Hamrlik, Tomas Plekanec, Andrei Kostitsyn and Andrei Markov during a power play late in the first period.
78-Days since the Kostitsyn brother each earned a point in the same game, with Andrei picking up an assist and his little bro lighting the lamp and adding a helper against the Oilers.
610-Combined man-games lost by the Habs and Oilers in 2009-10, with the Canadiens totaling 224 and Edmonton racking up a painful 386 on the season.
4-Consecutive 20 goal seasons posted by Tomas Plekanec, who opened the scoring only 1:20 into the game, setting the tone for the high-scoring evening.
33-Length in games of the scoring slump snapped by Travis Moen when he banged a loose puck past Dubnyk in the second period. It was Moen’s first goal since December 16 in New Jersey.
9-Times in as many starts that Oilers “goalie” Devan Dubnyk has returned to the dressing room after a game with a check in the loss column.
