Tonight’s Game 1 between the Habs and the Flyers featured:
67 shots on goal (34 by Montreal, 33 by Philly)
60 saves by the two goalies (30 each)
60 percent of faceoffs won by the Habs (71% success rate for Captain K)
48 seconds elapsed in overtime when the winning goal was scored
29 seconds left when the tying goal was scored
4 goals scored by Habs players whose last names start with KO
3 big scoring chances by Montreal that hit the goalpost
2 video-reviewed goals (both awarded, but narrowly)
2 brothers netting points
2 powerplay goals
1 short-handed goal
1 goal scored on our own net (Brisebois back in vintage form)
1 missed penalty shot
And a partridge in a pear tree.
Yes, it was a weird game. But at the end of the day, all that matters is the win column. 1-0 Habs after 1, so far, so good.
