GLENDALE - Here's a numerical look at Thursday night's game between the Canadiens and the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena.

222 - Number of games Max Domi played over the course of three seasons with the Arizona Coyotes before being dealt to the Canadiens in June. Thursday night's game marked his first encounter against his former squad, with whom he registered 36 goals and 99 assists, which was good for 135 points. Domi was selected 12th overall by Arizona in the 2012 NHL Draft.

418 - Number of games Alex Galchenyuk played over the course of six seasons with the Habs before being acquired by the Coyotes in exchange for Domi. Thursday night's tilt also marked Galchenyuk's first game against his former club, with whom he scored 108 goals and collected 147 assists for 255 points. Galchenyuk was selected third overall by Montreal in the 2012 NHL Draft.

22 - Number of seconds that elapsed in the second period when Shea Weber's point blast found the back of the net to give the Canadiens a 1-0 lead on Thursday night. Weber's fifth goal of the season was a power play strike that left Coyotes starter Darcy Kuemper completely helpless. It was the second straight game that the Canadiens clicked on the man advantage.

7 - Number of teams against whom Weber has reached double-digits in goals, adding the Coyotes to that list on Thursday night. The Canadiens' captain has torched the Chicago Blackhawks more times than any other team, though, with 17 goals against the contingent from the Windy City.

20 - Defenseman Jeff Petry became the first player on the Canadiens' roster to hit the 20-assist plateau on the year, collecting the primary helper on Weber's goal. It's the fourth time in Petry's career that he's registered at least 20 assists in a single campaign. His single-season high is 30, which he set last season with the Habs.

30 - With an assist on Weber's goal as well, Jonathan Drouin became the second Hab to reach the 30-point plateau so far this season, joining Domi, who continues to lead the squad in that department. It marked the third straight season that Drouin has accomplished the feat, and the fourth time in his career.

15 - Number of shots Carey Price faced during the second period alone on Thursday night, making several highlight-reel saves. Only Coyotes captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson managed to solve him while the Canadiens were down a man, as the six-time All-Star continued his stellar work in between the pipes.

1:16 - Time elapsed in the third period when Paul Byron put the Canadiens up 2-1 with his eighth goal of the 2018-19 campaign. It was Byron's fourth goal since returning from injury on December 1. The assists went to Phillip Danault and Andrew Shaw. 

300 - With the victory, Carey Price picked up his 300th career win on Thursday night. The 31-year-old goaltender is currently in his 12th season with the Canadiens.
