The Numbers Game - Dec. 19, 2011
BOSTON – Here’s a numerical look at the game between the Canadiens and the Bruins at the Bell Centre on Monday night.
6 – Number of games former-Bruin and current-Canadien, Tomas Kaberle has been on a point streak for prior to Monday night’s game. The Habs’ No. 22 has logged nine points – all of them assists – over that time.
715 – Number of games that have been played between the Canadiens and the Bruins, the most of any two teams with the NHL in a tie with the Blackhawks-Red Wings.
2 – Number of games that Raphael Diaz was shelved with the flu, with the Suisse defenseman making his return to action Monday night, seeing 21:28 of ice-time under his new head coach.
17 – Number of consecutive match-ups with the Bruins, dating all the way back to last year’s playoffs, that Carey Price has been the goalie manning the crease for the Habs.
29 – Number of points amassed by Tomas Plekanec against the Bruins over the course of his career. That puts Boston in a tie with the Carolina Hurricanes as the team Plekanec has had the most success against since joining the NHL.
8.16 – Number of kilometres separating the TD Garden in Boston and the Bright Hockey Center – the arena where Louis Leblanc skated for the Harvard Crimson in the 2009-10 season.
