DETROIT - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Canadiens and Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

10 - Number of days remaining on the Canadiens' season-long 12-day road trip that included a stop in Detroit on Saturday night for a tilt against the Red Wings, before moving on to Anaheim, San Jose, Los Angeles and St. Louis over the next week-and-a-half. 

9 - Number of games Artturi Lehkonen missed with an upper-body injury before returning to the Canadiens' lineup on Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. Lehkonen hadn't seen game action since November 5 against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Bell Centre.

5 - Number of players on the Canadiens' current roster with Michigan ties in one way or another, including Jeff Petry, Greg Pateryn and Zach Redmond - all of whom are Michigan natives - and Max Pacioretty and Al Montoya, both of whom played college hockey at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor before embarking on their NHL careers.

10 - Number of times Alexei Emelin has dished out at least four hits in a single game so far this season, including Saturday night's tilt in the Motor City. The Russian rearguard finished the game with six hits as he threw his weight around on multiple occasions trying to swing the momentum in the Canadiens' favor.

45:25 - Time elapsed in Saturday night's game before the Canadiens got their first chance to operate with the man advantage. It wasn't until Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg was called for holding on Paul Byron at the 5:25 mark of the third period that the Canadiens benefitted from a power play opportunity.

15 - Number of games Brendan Gallagher went without a goal before tying things up 1-1 with his fifth goal of the season at the 11:05 mark of the third period, re-directing a Tomas Plekanec shot past Red Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek.

36 - Spot Michel Therrien now ranks on the NHL's all-time wins list among head coaches with his 391st career victory behind the bench on Saturday night, jumping ahead of Hall-of-Famer Fred Shero. Two-hundred and fifty-six of those victories have come as the head coach of the Canadiens.

13 - Number of teams Carey Price has posted a double-digit win total against over the course of his NHL career, adding the Red Wings to that list on Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena.
