VANCOUVER - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game between the Canadiens and the Canucks at Rogers Arena.

236 - Number of consecutive games Tomas Plekanec suited up in before being forced to miss Tuesday night's game against the Vancouver Canucks with an upper-body injury. The last time the veteran centerman had missed a game was all the way back on March 29, 2014 when the Canadiens downed the Florida Panthers 4-1 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise.

22 - Young gun Michael McCarron celebrated his 22nd birthday on Tuesday in the Lower Mainland, although the Michigan native was a healthy scratch for the Canadiens' first game on their Western road swing. McCarron also watched from the sidelines last Saturday night in New York.

4 - Number of players in the Canadiens' lineup on Tuesday night who had plenty of support in the Rogers Arena stands given their ties to British Columbia, as natives Carey Price, Shea Weber, Jordie Benn and long-time resident Brendan Gallagher all returned to the province for the squad's lone regular-season visit.

4 - Defenseman Brandon Davidson became just the fourth player in Canadiens history to sport No. 88 on Tuesday night as he debuted in Vancouver after being acquired in a trade with the Edmonton Oilers last week. He joins Roger Jenkins (1934-35), Xavier Delisle (2001-02) and Christopher Higgins (2003-04) as the only Habs to have ever worn those digits.

20 - Number of seconds that elapsed in the opening frame before the plethora of Habs fans in attendance got the "Go Habs Go" chant going at Rogers Arena to get Claude Julien's contingent pumped up to take on the Canucks.

39 - Number of games Torrey Mitchell went without a goal before snapping that streak and getting the Canadiens on the board early in the first period on Tuesday night. Mitchell tipped an Andrei Markov point shot home past goaltender Ryan Miller for his first tally since December 8 when he registered a two-goal effort against the New Jersey Devils.

5 - Number of times Brendan Gallagher has generated six shots or more in a single contest so far this season, accomplishing that feat once again on Tuesday night with a seven-shot effort against the Canucks. 

4 - Number of 30-win seasons Carey Price now boasts on his resume after besting the Canucks on Tuesday night to reach that impressive mark once again this year.

6 - Number of consecutive victories the Canadiens have rattled off, including Tuesday night's victory in Vancouver, a streak that began back on February 25 with a 3-2 overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs at the ACC.
