Canadiens vs. Panthers All Time Record

The Florida Panthers joined the NHL in 1993-94. That year, the club recorded the best inaugural season of any team in the league, finishing the campaign just one game under .500. In their third season, the Panthers reached the Stanley Cup Finals against the Colorado Avalanche.

The Canadiens and Panthers first met on November 10, 1993 at the Forum, with the Canadiens dropping a 3-1 decision.

Montreal and Florida, the Eastern Conference champions in 1996, have never faced off in the postseason.

I have to work so I'm not going to get to see this game. :frown:
Here's a numerical look at the Canadiens-Panthers matchup in Florida on Monday night.

3,000 - All-time wins piled up by the Canadiens since joining the NHL in 1917-18, topping the Boston Bruins - their next closest rival - by 304 victories.

3-Consecutive seasons in which Tomas Plekanec has now potted at least a pair of shorthanded goals.

6-Goals assisted by Tom Kostopoulos in 2008-09, matching the rugged winger's total in 67 games last season.

52-Pounds given up to Anthony Stewart by Steve Begin in his tussle with the Panthers center in the second period.

132-Career NHL games needed by Maxim Lapierre to notch his first NHL hat trick, with Lapierre never having even scored two goals in a game entering Monday night's battle with the Panthers.

13-Games this season in which the Canadiens have scored four or more goals. The Habs are now 12-1 on those nights.

56-Team-high faceoff percentage posted by rookie Ben Mawell against Florida.
