Numbers for Nerds

The Montreal Canadiens have the 29th ranked offense in the NHL, scoring 2.51 goals per game. Their defense ranks 24th in the NHL, allowing an average of 3.12 goals per game. If there were a time for Anaheim to take advantage of a shaky defense and a backup goaltender who has only played in five games this season, it's now.
