And so it's set.

Caps vs. Habs. Red, white and blue vs. bleu, blanc et rouge. Ryan Walter and Rick Green for Rod Langway, Craig Laughlin, Doug Jarvis and Brian Engblom. Alex Ovechkin's best game as an NHLer. "The Sequel". Jose Theodore's return to La Belle Province looking to add to his Masterton credentials by overcoming one of the toughest crowds in hockey... and his past.

There'll be plenty of time to dive into those storylines and others in the days ahead, but first things first - the numbers. Below are the Caps team and individual stats (after the jump) from this season against the Canadiens.
