The Numbers Game - Jan. 17, 2011
100 – Consecutive number of regular season games played by new Habs Iron Man Hal Gill, dating back to December 4, 2009.
Highlights Canadiens - Flames
81 – Number of games played by Michael Cammalleri in a Flames uniform during the 2008-09 season, coming back to haunt his old team with an assist on Lars Eller’s goal before scoring one of his own in the opening frame.
7 – Number of seconds Cammalleri needed after being sprung from the penalty box to add a little more salt to the wound, exiting the box and snapping a wrister past former teammate Miikka Kiprusoff immediately after serving his time for slashing.
4 – Number of goals allowed by Kiprusoff in his 26:04 of work before being yanked, after coming into Monday night’s tilt with a 2.56 goals-against average.
2 – Consecutive number of games in which Andrei Kostitsyn has lit the lamp, breaking out of his 9-game slump to score in back-to-back outings.
4 – Number of times the Habs have scored five or more goals in a game, doing so on Monday night for the first time since December 2 in New Jersey.
8 – Number of Canadiens games that have been decided in either overtime or a shootout so far this year, with the Habs now going 5-3 in those outings.
1 – Number of times since the Flames moved to Calgary that they’ve beaten the Canadiens in back-to-back games in Montreal. Calgary last accomplished the feat on January 21, 1984 and February 5, 1985 but failed to follow up a November 10, 2009 win with another on Monday night at the Bell Centre.
