TORONTO - Here's a numerical look at Monday night's preseason game between the Canadiens and the Maple Leafs at Ricoh Coliseum.

4 - Number of preseason games Jacob De La Rose and Byron Froese have played to date, including Monday night's tilt in Toronto, which leads all players still on the Canadiens' training camp roster. Claude Julien's troops have played five preseason games and will be back in action on Wednesday night in Quebec City against the Maple Leafs again.

33 - Minutes prior to puck drop when the Canadiens announced that scheduled starter Charlie Lindgren had suffered a lower-body injury and wouldn't be available on Monday night. Al Montoya got the call instead, making his third appearance of the preseason.

58 - Number of career NHL games Froese played in a Maple Leafs uniform before being traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning in February and then joining the Canadiens over the summer. The 26-year-old forward returned to familiar territory on Monday night, having also spent time with the AHL's Toronto Marlies, who call Ricoh Coliseum home.

95 - Number emergency backup goaltender Jake Hildebrand sported on Monday night in Toronto after being called upon to don a Canadiens uniform once Lindgren went down. An invitee to the Marlies' training camp, the 24-year-old netminder spent time last season with the Indy Fuel (ECHL) and Rockford IceHogs (AHL).

2 - Number of times over the course of his NHL career that Brendan Gallagher has dropped the gloves during the preseason. Prior to going toe-to-toe with Zach Hyman late in the first period on Monday night, Gallagher's last preseason scrap came back on September 21, 2013 against Nathan Gerbe, who was then a member of the Carolina Hurricanes.

2 - Number of assists defenseman Victor Mete has amassed during his two preseason outings, adding another helper on Monday night by finding Jeff Petry with a tape-to-tape feed for the Canadiens' first goal of the game at the 11:37 mark of the second period. It's worth noting that Mete currently leads the Habs in the assist department.
