MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game between the Canadiens and the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Bell Centre.

2 - Number of sets of back-to-back games the Canadiens have remaining on their 2016-17 regular-season schedule following Tuesday night's contest against the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Bell Centre. Head coach Claude Julien's squad will now get a well-deserved break from playing two games in as many days. The next time that happens will be a home-and-home set against the Ottawa Senators on March 18 and 19, respectively.

302 - Number of games defenseman Jordie Benn played in a Dallas Stars uniform before being acquired by the Canadiens on Monday afternoon and suiting up for his Habs debut on Tuesday night. The 29-year-old Victoria, BC native had previously spent his entire NHL career to date with Dallas before sporting No. 8 for Julien's contingent just over 24 hours after being dealt to Montreal.

6 - Number of times young gun Michael McCarron has dished out at least four hits in a single game so far this season, doing just that once again on Tuesday night. The 21-year-old Grosse Pointe, Mi native finished the tilt with five hits, doing his best to give the Canadiens a boost with his physical style of play.

91 - Number of games of NHL experience newly acquired defenseman Brandon Davidson brings with him from the Edmonton Oilers after being traded to the Canadiens during Tuesday night's contest in exchange for David Desharnais. The 25-year-old Lethbridge, AB native has five goals, 13 points and 36 penalty minutes on his resume during his time in the NHL ranks.

88 - Number Davidson will sport as a member of the Canadiens, becoming the third player in Habs history to wear it on his back, joining both Chris Higgins and Xavier Delisle. 

0 - Number of goals the Canadiens and Blue Jackets combined to generate through 60 minutes of play on Tuesday night as the contest needed overtime to settle the score. 

3 - Number of consecutive overtime games Clade Julien's troops have now been forced to play, after besting the Toronto Maple Leafs and New Jersey Devils in the extra frame on the road before taking on the Blue Jackets at home.
