Habs records that may be broken this season

Interesting facts about our Habs courtesy of

SLAP HAPPY SHELDON: Sheldon Souray's 10 power-play goals this season leaves him one shy of the Canadiens record of 11 by a defenceman in a season. Three guys have pulled off the feat – Guy Lapointe (1974-75), Mathieu Schneider (1993-94) and Patrice Brisebois (2000-01). For the record, Souray's only eight goals shy of the NHL record.

The current record of 18 is shared by Denis Potvin and Adrian Aucoin. Potvin did it in 1975-1976 with the New York Islanders. Aucoin matched it 1998-1999 with the Vancouver Canucks.

TWO FOR THE MONEY:One more multiple-goal game on the up-coming road trip will give Saku Koivu five multiple-goal games this month, tying him with the following players who established the record: Steve Shutt (November, 1976), Guy Lafleur (November, 1974), Jean Béliveau (March, 1959) and Maurice Richard (February, 1944) . . .

SHORT STUFF: Michael Ryder scored a short-handed goal in Boston on Saturday. The club has 11 on the season and that's just four shy of the club record. The team record of 15 was established in 1995-1996.
