The Numbers Game - Game #4 - May 8, 2014
MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Game 4 between the Habs and Bruins on Thursday night at the Bell Centre.
27 – Playoff points for P.K. Subban since breaking into the NHL in the 2009-10 season. Since then, he has been the highest scoring defenseman in the entire league on a per-game basis (0.82 PPG).
2214 - Days since the Habs last won a Game 4 against Boston. On April 15 2008, Carey Price pitched a shutout and Patrice Brisebois scored the lone goal of the game on a powerplay. The Habs would go on to defeat the Bruins in Game 7 of the opening-round series that spring.
2 – Number of times this playoff season when the Habs have gone to the dressing room tied 0-0 at the first intermission. The team was also deadlocked at zero after the first 20 minutes of Game 2 against the Lightning.
0 – Number of times the Habs have been in a scoreless tie after two periods this postseason. Carey Price and Tuukka Rask combined for 44 saves in 40 minutes to preserve the score.
74:27 – Time elapsed between penalties taken by the Canadiens. The Habs’ game-long streak was ended when P.K. Subban went to the box at 7:05 in the second period.
28 - Hits dished out by defenseman Alexei Emelin since the start of the playoffs, a team-high total. The Russian also led the Habs in that category during the regular season with 189 in just 59 games.
6 – Number of Bruins dumped by rugged defenseman Douglas Murray. Fraser and Soderberg were punished twice each.
1 – Thursday’s 1-0 overtime decision marked the first time in the 2014 playoffs when the Habs did not score 3 goals or more in a game.
