Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's preseason game between the Canadiens and the Capitals at the Bell Centre.

252 -- Number of seconds it took Alexander Radulov to get on the board in his first preseason game with the Habs, redirecting Greg Pateryn's shot past Vitek Vanecek at 4:12 in the opening frame.Video: Radulov redirects Pateryn's shot on the power play

1,604 -- Number of days since Radulov last suited up for an NHL team, dating back to a May 7, 2012 postseason outing with the Nashville Predators.

3 -- Number of players responsible for all of the scoring in the first period. Radulov got the game's opening goal with assists from Pateryn and Nathan Beaulieu, before the latter doubled the lead with assists from Radulov and Pateryn to make it 2-0 after 20.

4 -- Number of points registered by Nathan Beaulieu in his 2016 preseason debut. The 23-year-old defenseman scored the game's second goal and added a helper on three of the first four tallies.Video: Radulov sets Beaulieu up in the 1st

0 -- Number of Habs in Tuesday's lineup who also played on Monday. All 20 players who faced the Devils in the team's preseason opener benefited from a night off against the Capitals.

528 -- Number of games Torrey Mitchell has played in the NHL, tops among his decidedly youthful team comprised of many Habs hopefuls on Tuesday.

11 -- Number of seconds it took Paul Byron to regain a two-goal second period Canadiens lead. After Marcus Johansson got the Caps on the board at 9:13 in the middle frame, Byron replied right back at 9:24.

8 -- Number of shots goaltender Al Montoya faced over 29:20 of ice time in his first preseason outing with the Habs, stopping all but one before Zachary Fucale stepped in at the midway mark of the game.

2 -- Number of former Habs who made a first visit to the Bell Centre with their new club, as Christian Thomas and Darren Dietz were both in uniform for Washington.
