MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Thursday night's game between the Canadiens and the Carolina Hurricanes at the Bell Centre.

5 - Number of consecutive games winger Andreas Martinsen missed as a healthy scratch before being re-inserted into the Canadiens' lineup on Thursday night to face the Carolina Hurricanes at the Bell Centre. It marked the 26-year-old's fourth appearance for Claude Julien's contingent since joining the fold at the trade deadline following a deal with the Colorado Avalanche. Martinsen hadn't seen game action since March 9 in Calgary.

6:46 - Time it took the newly formed line of Alex Galchenyuk, Andrew Shaw and Artturi Lehkonen to factor in on the scoresheet on Thursday night as Galchenyuk opened the scoring with his 16th goal of the year at the 6:46 mark of the opening frame. The Canadiens' No. 27 capped a 2-on-1 rush by going top shelf on Hurricanes goaltender Eddie Lack off a perfect feed from Shaw. Lehkonen picked up the secondary assist on the play.

9 - Galchenyuk snapped a nine-game goal drought with the tally. His previous marker came back on February 28 against the Columbus Blue Jackets when he scored his second of two straight overtime winners in as many nights.

14 - Number of players on the Canadiens' roster who've hit the 20-point plateau so far this season, with Lehkonen becoming the latest player to add his name to the list courtesy of his seventh helper of the year.

6:23 - Following Galchenyuk's strike, the two teams played without a whistle until the 13:09 mark of the period - a span of 6:23 of straight-up hockey - until Carey Price chose to freeze the puck. A total of 16 hits were dished out while the clock kept on running, four turnovers were created, two shots hit the net, two were missed, and one was blocked.

- Number of hits defenseman Jeff Petry dished out during Thursday night's tilt, a season-high for the 29-year-old Michigan native. Petry certainly didn't shy away from throwing his weight around to keep the Hurricanes from getting too comfortable all evening long.
