TAMPA - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Canadiens and the Lightning at Amalie Arena.

4 - Number of times Carey Price has started at least 60 games in a single NHL regular-season campaign, reaching that mark once again on Saturday night when he suited up to face the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena. Price previously accomplished the feat in 2010-11 - when he started a career-high 70 games. He also did it 2011-12, and again in 2014-15.

680 - The Canadiens featured a fourth line of Dwight King, Michael McCarron and Andreas Martinsen on Saturday night that weighs in at a combined 680 pounds, certainly making it among the most imposing around. McCarron leads the trio at 231 pounds, while King and Martinsen check in at 229 and 220 pounds, respectively. 

200 - Number of assists captain Max Pacioretty has collected over the course of his NHL career, reaching that mark after collecting the lone assist on linemate Phillip Danault's marker at the 14:24 mark of the second period on Saturday night. Danault's 13th goal of the year gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead through 40 minutes of play.

3 - Number of players on the Canadiens' roster who've reached the 30-assist plateau during the 2016-17 campaign, with Pacioretty joining Alexander Radulov (35) and Andrei Markov (30) on Saturday night.

4 - Number of teams against whom Danault has scored more than once over the course of his career, adding the Lightning to that list on Saturday night. The Victoriaville, QC native has also scored twice against the Buffalo Sabres, Florida Panthers and the Winnipeg Jets.
