by Staff Writer @CanadiensMTL /

MONTREAL -- Here's a numerical look at Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Islanders.

2 -- Number of players who drew back into the lineup on Monday. Forwards Byron Froese and Daniel Carr were slotted in for injured Habs Phillip Danault and Andrew Shaw opposite the Isles, getting their first game action since Dec. 30 and Jan. 2, respectively.

175 -- Number of consecutive games Danault had played in, a streak which came to an end against New York. Prior to Monday, Danault had suited up for every Habs game dating back to Dec. 17, 2015.

2 -- Number of career NHL points for Jakub Jerabek, who got onto the scoresheet for the first time as a Hab. The 26-year-old set up Nicolas Deslauriers' first-period tally in his 18th game with the Canadiens, then added another helper on Jonathan Drouin's middle-frame marker.

6 -- Number of goals this season for Deslauriers, who ties his previous career best from 2015-16 with Buffalo. This time however, it took the 26-year-old 24 games to hit the mark, as opposed to 70 with the Sabres two seasons ago.

7 -- Number of games David Schlemko had gone without a point, prior to setting up Paul Byron's opening frame equalizer on Monday. The helper was the 30-year-old's second with the Habs, after missing the start of the season to injury.

3 -- Number of consecutive games with at least a point for Drouin, who found the back of the net for the first time in 13 games with just 43.8 seconds remaining in the second to cut the Islanders lead to one. Alex Galchenyuk likewise extended his point streak to three games on the play with an assist.

5 -- Number of points for Max Pacioretty over the last five games, including four goals -- and Monday's third-period equalizer to force OT.

56 -- Number of times the Canadiens tested Islanders goaltender Thomas Greiss. The Habs outshot the visitors heavily by a 56 to 22 margin at the Bell Centre, but couldn't seal the win on Monday, despite coming from behind to tie things up twice.
