The Numbers Game - May 20, 2010
137:05 – Time, in minutes, between the Canadiens’ last goal against the Penguins in Game 7 and their first goal of Round 3 against the Flyers.
5 – Number of times since the start of the playoffs that Michael Cammalleri has scored first for the Habs, giving Montreal a 1-0 lead again in Game 3.
2 – Consecutive number of games in which Cammalleri was previously held off the scoresheet, ending his longest “scoring slump” of the 2010 Playoffs with the games opening tally on Thursday night.
7 – Points accrued by Roman Hamrlik so far in the playoffs, matching his career high set in 2001 with the Islanders.
9 – Seasons since Arron Asham received any kind of love whilst playing a hockey game in Montreal, dating back to his final of four seasons with the Canadiens in 2001-02.
4 – Number of times the Habs have skated away with a win when Tom Pyatt has scored in these playoffs, doing so all four times the rookie has found the back of the net in the postseason.
1 – Number of times the Canadiens have bounced back from back-to-back shutouts to win the next game, succeeding for the first time in five such scenarios on Thursday night after being held goalless in Games 1 and 2 in Philly.
0.800 – The Canadiens’ win percentage so far in the 2010 Playoffs when the Habs get on the board first, owning an 8-2 record when they open the scoring.
86 – Faceoff percentage by Glen Metropolit in Game 3, with the former Flyer going 12-for-14 on his draws on Thursday night.
38 – Number of shots fired at Flyers goalie Michael Leighton by the Habs, topping the 26 pucks sent Jaroslav Halak’s way in the evening and marking the first time in the 2010 Playoffs that the Canadiens have out-shot their opponent and won the game.
22 – Number of gloves strewn about the ice with 1:51 left to play in the third period with Leighton pulled for the extra attacker. Halak was the sole player not partnered off for a mid-ice scuffle in the dying minutes of Game 3.
