More game notes from Montreal:

THE MONEY SHOT: Andrej Meszaros recorded his second game-winning-goal of the year. He now has 11 goals since joining the Flyers in 2010 and 4 of them have been game-winners. Over the course of his NHL career, 9 of Meszaros’s 45 goals (20 percent) have been game-winning goals.

WHERE'D YOU GO? Canadiens forward Louis LeBlanc netted his first career NHL goal in the second period. After that, he played a total of just 69 seconds, with 1 shift in the entire 3rd period.

THREE APPLES: Matt Carle had 3 assists. It’s his first three-point game since Jan. 7, 2010 (1G, 2A at PIT) and his first 3-assist game since he posted 4 assists vs. Washington on Oct. 6, 2009.

POWER OUTAGE: The Flyers' win over Montreal certainly wasn't decided by the officials. The two teams combined to go 1-for-15 on the power play, including the Flyers' 0-for-6 effort. On the flip side, the Flyers had 3 key penalty kills: one in the final 2 minutes to seal the game, and 2 separate 5-on-3 advantages that lasted a total of 2 minutes.

EVER WONDER... Why so many Canadiens players wear strange jersey numbers? LeBlanc wears No. 71. Erik Cole wears No. 72. Hal Gill dons No. 75. In all, 12 players the Canadiens' roster have a number higher than 40. That's because the Canadiens have 17 retired numbers. That means every number from 1 through 10 is taken with the exception of 6 and 8. A total of 12 of the first 20 numbers have been worn by an all-time great, leaving many players to reverse their normal number (e.g. 27 to 72).
