Things You May Not Know: Kings-Canadiens Edition

Habs SubbanUntil something happens in the future to change it, Kings-Canadiens only really means one thing – the 1993 Stanley Cup Final. Even with the Kings winning two Cups in the last three years, and the Habs not making the Final again since that year, there will forever be something that just feels a little bit off about that series. It isn’t the fact the Kings lost, it’s more about how they lost. For example, the burden Marty McSorley still carried for 20 years (see here). Now, many people are even predicting these two teams to meet up again for the Cup next June. That would certainly be interesting.

In the meantime, we have come up with five notes that will very likely make you sound smart while watching all the action with a friend or loved one tonight… or even at a sports bar talking to strangers…

Five Things You May Not Have Known about Ottawa Senators:

1. The Canadiens’ nine first period goals in 30 games this season finds them tied with Buffalo for the fewest goals in the opening 20 minutes. Additionally, the Canadiens are a perfect 10 for 10 when scoring the first goal of the game.

2. Despite winning 18 of their 30 games this season, the Canadiens have scored 77 goals, but have also yielded 77 goals.

3. Only Corey Schneider has seen more rubber than the 710 shots that have made there way to Carey Price this season. It should also be noted that Schneider has played in 4 more games than Price.

4. P.K. Subban, pictured, has six points in his last six games.

5. The Canadiens have given up four goals or more eight times this season and five goals or more three times.
