What goes around comes around, they say.

On Nov. 4, the Montreal Canadiens were the laughing stock of the NHL following a 10-0 drubbing at the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Just over a month later, the Habs are on the other end of the spectrum thanks to a 10-1 shellacking of the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.

The Facts

The Canadiens are the first team since the 2005-06 Buffalo Sabres to allow 10 and score 10 in the same season.
The last time Montreal scored nine goals at home was 1994.
10 goals is a new Bell Centre record.
Montreal scored six goals in a period for the first time since Dec. 17, 1992, versus the ... Quebec Nordiques.
The Canadiens started with five goals in the opening 8:41, the last time Montreal scored five goals in the first 10 minutes of a game was Feb. 14, 1990.
Carl Soderberg and Mikhail Grigorenko were the only Colorado players that weren't a minus, in a combined 1:12 of ice time.

The Numbers

5: The amount of points for captain Max Pacioretty, including a career-high four goals.

28: The number of scoring chances Montreal created.

.625: Semyon Varlamov's save percentage after allowing six goals on 16 shots.

9: Even-strength goals for the Canadiens.

- 40: Colorado's combined plus-minus on the night.
