By The Numbers: Panthers 5, Canadiens 1
Panthers By The Numbers takes a closer look at some of the
interesting stats that you may or may have not known about
.

  Panthers 5, Canadiens 1

21 – It didn’t take long for the Panthers to jump on the board on their first power play attempt of the game. With Josh Gorges off for roughing, Jay Bouwmeester scored his 11th of the season just 21 seconds into the man advantage and 3:54 into the game. It was his team leading seventh power play goal of the season.

1Stephen Weiss was very active Thursday night assisting on Bouwmeester’s power play goal and then scoring the second power play goal of the night with 4:24 left in the first and then making a nice pass on Michael Frolik’s third period goal. It was the first time this season (7, 2-point games) he had a three-point game. In fact, the last time he had recorded a three point game was March 15, 2007 against Buffalo.

9 – It was a power surge for the Panthers as they scored twice on the power play against Montreal. This was the third time in the last six games that the Cats have had multiple power play goals in a game and their ninth on the season (6-2-1 in those games).

2 – Known more for his goals, even though he now has more assists (15) than tallies, Nathan Horton recorded just his second multi-assist game of the season, picking up the second assist on both Weiss’ and Richard Zednik’s goal. The other game was a three-assist night in Tampa on January 17th.

7 – Could this be the start of a hot streak for Richard Zednik this season? The forward broke in and around a diving Gorges and then around Carey Price before putting the puck into the net for the seventh goal of his season. Then in the third he almost scored on a breakaway but was denied by a beautiful glove save. Last season Zednik got hot around this time scoring 6 goals in 4 games. He finished with three shots, two hits and two takeaways in the game.

19 – Florida leads the league or is near the top in several categories, including the most goals by the defensive core, but one of the most interesting stats is that the Cats lead the league in penalty shot goals this season. Even more interesting is that all three goals (Frolik on January 10th, Booth on January 19th and Radek Dvorak Thursday night) happened in the same month, just 19 days apart. Tampa, Montreal and Colorado all have two successful penalty shot attempts this season.

3 – Not named one of the game’s top three stars although he very well could have, Cory Stillman picked up three assists in the game. Assisting on Bouwmeester’s, Weiss', and Frolik’s goals, Stillman had his first three-assist night as a Panther and tied his season high for points (San Jose – October 24th, 2 goals, assist).

5/6 – Usually to win, one has to win the little battles. Thursday, Florida did that, outhitting Montreal by five (27-22) and blocking six more shots (10-4). Keith Ballard and Gregory Campbell had five hits each to lead the team while four Panthers had two blocks a piece. 

15 – It was a nail biter going into the final game of the series this season as the Panthers had lost the first three games (0-2-1) to Montreal, but with the win, the Cats have now beaten the Canadiens in every season of franchise history. There are only two other teams that the Cats have that streak against, the Atlanta Thrashers and the New York Rangers.

762 – It’s been awhile since the Panthers fans saw a Cats victory on home ice against the Habs, 762 days to be exact. The last time Florida beat Montreal came over two years ago on December 29th, 2006.
