The Numbers Game - April 23, 2010
WASHINGTON --Here’s a numerical look at Game 5 between the Habs and the Caps at the Verizon Center on Friday night.

90-Seconds needed for Michael Cammalleri to open the scoring for the Habs, something he also did in Game 4 in Montreal.

0-Playoff games this spring in which Cammalleri has failed to pick up at least a point, with the sharp-shooting winger doing exactly that for a fifth straight game on Friday night.

0-Jacques Martin’s level of regret following his addition of Travis Moen to the Scott Gomez-Brian Gionta line thanks to the gritty winger’s first period goal to put Montreal ahead 2-0.

.222-The Capitals winning percentage in Game 5’s when they hold a 3-1 series edge, with Washington going only 2-7 all-time on such potentially clinching nights.

13 –Years since the Canadiens were last eliminated from the playoffs on enemy ice, dating back to a Game 5 loss at the hands of the New Jersey Devils in 1997. The other six eliminations since then have come on home ice at the Bell Centre.

7 –Times the Canadiens have forced a sixth game by winning Game 5 after falling behind 3-1 in a playoff series.

15 -Shots piled up by the Capitals' pair of Alexes, with Ovechkin and Semin firing six and nine shots respectively on Halak.
