MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game between the Canadiens and the Calgary Flames at the Bell Centre.

5 - Number of consecutive games Daniel Carr watched from the press box as a healthy scratch before returning to the Canadiens' lineup on Tuesday night in place of the injured Alex Galchenyuk who was sidelined after re-aggravating his knee injury over the weekend.

130 - Paul Byron played 130 career games with the Flames during his four seasons in Calgary before being claimed off waivers by the Canadiens in 2015. He amassed 16 goals and 30 assists with his former club.

6 - Andrew Shaw opened the scoring for the Canadiens in his sixth game back since returning from concussion-like symptoms on Tuesday night, converting a perfect feed from Sven Andrighetto to give the Canadiens a 1-0 lead with just 42.2 seconds remaining in the opening frame. Shaw's seventh goal of the season was his first since December 4 against the Los Angeles Kings.

1 - After picking up the secondary assist on Shaw's tally, Jeff Petry needs just one more point in order to tie his single-season high of 25 points set during the 2011-12 campaign with the Edmonton Oilers. 

50 - Percentage of the Canadiens' four short-handed goals so far this season that belong to Tomas Plekanec after the veteran centerman scored his second tally of the year while Michel Therrien's troops were down a man. He capped an odd-man rush by beating Flames goaltender Chad Johnson five-hole at 4:53 of the second period.

2 - Spot Plekanec now occupies alongside Bob Gainey on the Canadiens' all-time short-handed goals list with his 20th career tally under those circumstances. Guy Carbonneau is still the reinging leader in that department with 27 short-handed goals of his own.

6 - Number of times Alexander Radulov has lit the lamp on the power play on the year, doing just that twice again on Tuesday night. That ranks him second on the team alongside captain Max Pacioretty.

3 - Number of players on the Canadiens' roster who've now reached the 30-point plateau on the year, with Shea Weber becoming the latest player to accomplish the feat by picking up an assist on Radulov's power play marker. Radulov and Pacioretty are the other two players on the 30-point list.

24 - Number of consecutive games Daniel Carr went without a goal before chipping in with the Canadiens' fourth goal of the night at the 8:08 mark of the third period. Carr's previous tally came all the way back on November 10 against the Los Angeles Kings at the Bell Centre.

785 - Number of days since Carey Price last registered an assist, before picking up a helper on Carr's second goal of the year. Prior to that, Price last factored in on the scoresheet back on December 1, 2014 against the Colorado Avalanche.
