MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Canadiens and the Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre.

12 - Number of consecutive victories the Canadiens have posted over the Toronto Maple Leafs, including Saturday night's 2-1 win in Montreal. The last time the Canadiens came up short against their Original Six rival was back on January 18, 2014.

11 - Number of back-to-back sets of games the Canadiens have remaining on their schedule following Saturday night's contest against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre. Fortunately, Michel Therrien's troops won't have to play two games in as many days again until they go up against the San Jose Sharks on December 16 at home, and the Washington Capitals on December 17 in the District of Columbia.

500 - Number of career games captain Max Pacioretty has played in the NHL ranks - and with the Montreal Canadiens - by suiting up on Saturday night. The 27-year-old forward, who made his NHL debut back in 2008-09, became the 63rd player in franchise history to play at least 500 games in a Canadiens uniform, joining the likes of fellow Americans Chris Nilan, Francis Bouillon and Craig Ludwig.

5 - Number of goals Paul Byron has scored in the last seven games, adding to that tally by burying a loose puck past Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen during the first period on Saturday night to give the Canadiens a 1-0 lead. Byron now has seven goals on the season, tying him for the team lead in that department alongside Shea Weber and Alex Galchenyuk.

5:27 - Time that elapsed during the first period of play between the time Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner was assessed a penalty at 10:18 and the next stoppage of play. No whistle was blown after the penalty call until Byron scored at 15:45.

3 - Number of times Canadiens players had to deal with broken sticks during the first period on Saturday night, as Shea Weber, Alex Galchenyuk and Andrei Markov all had to return to the bench for a new piece of hardware at some point while play continued.

5 - Number of seconds it took Alex Galchenyuk to capitalize on a power play opportunity during the second period on Saturday night. The Canadiens' No. 27 scored at the 32-second mark of the middle frame to put the Habs up 2-0. Called for tripping, Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bozak didn't even have enough time to sit down in the penalty box.

4 - Number of multi-assist games Alexander Radulov has registered so far this season, picking up two helpers during Saturday night's contest. The Russian forward, who leads the Canadiens in multi-assist efforts, made his return to the lineup after missing a pair of games due to illness.

8 - Number of shots Shea Weber managed to block for the Canadiens on Saturday night, a new season-high for the towering defenseman. Weber had previously blocked six shots back on November 8 in a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre.
