DALLAS – Here's a numerical view of the game on Monday night between Canadiens and Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center.
2 – Goaltender Anti Nimi faced two of his former crews on this Canadiens journey. On Friday night, Nimi and Hubs beat Florida Panthers 5-3 at the BB & T center in the Sun before confronting the Dallas Stars. The Finnish netminder spent two seasons in the state of Lone Star, composing a record of 37-25-11, 2.92 goals – on average, and 0,900 save a percentage in 85 matches.

9 – Philip Dayt won his eighth and ninth points (5G, 4A) in the last five games. Daital opened the result by completing the Bret Kulak service before the network to beat the stars Ben Bishop for the sixth appearance of the season, and in the third period equalized the Hubble. Danault is tearing in the end – he has two three-point games during this five-year-old game, including his first triumph in the career against the Golden Knights' Golden Knights before the Christmas break.

3 – Number of consecutive matches in which Brett Kulak earned a point. Kulak scored his first goal as Canadian on Saturday night against Lightning, and he earned a helping hand in Daut's first goal. It's the first triangular representation of the 24-year-old Argentine's career.
4 – Jordi Ben maybe it's not driving in a row, but he has four points in the last four games. He earned a run in Vegas, a two-point knockout Saturday in Tampa – which included reaching his second goal of the season – and earned a well-deserved assistant in the first period of Danut against his former team, Stars, on Monday. Benn is seven points (2G, 5A) in 39 matches this season.
6 – With the goal of Dautut, Canadiens has now scored the first in each of the last six games. Before the Dallas match on Monday, Hubs won three of those games – against Arizona, Vegas and Florida – and two fell.

45 – They were simply spectacular in his former places for insertion on Monday. He made a record 45 savings against the Stars, many of which are at the top of the highlighted roll. The last time he stood on more than 45 or more packages was on March 3, when he made 48 saves at a loss of 2-1 to Bruins in Boston.
