A numerical look at Thursday night's game against the Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre

OTTAWA - Here's a numerical look at Thursday night's game against the Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre.

20 - Number of seconds that elapsed after Senators right-winger Mark Stone opened the scoring on Thursday night before defenseman Jeff Petry responded for the Canadiens to tie things up 1-1. It was Petry's fourth goal of the season, and his second in the last three games. It was also his sixth career goal versus Ottawa. He has more career goals against the Senators than any other team.

6 - Number of teams against whom Petry has hit the double-digt mark in points, adding Guy Boucher's contingent to that list on Thursday night. The veteran blueliner also has 10 points or more against the Anaheim Ducks, Calgary Flames, Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins and the Vancouver Canucks.

1 - Michael Chaput collected his first career point in a Canadiens uniform with an assist on Petry's marker. The 26-year-old forward was playing in his eighth game of the season for the Habs. It was also the first time he'd registered his name on an NHL scoresheet since the 2016-17 campaign when he was still a member of the Vancouver Canucks.

4 - In just his fourth game back from a lower-body injury that cost him the entire month of November, Paul Byron lit the lamp during the second period to give the Canadiens a 2-1 lead. Byron's fifth goal of the season came off a tape-to-tape backhand feed from Phillip Danault. The Ottawa native has points in three of his four outings since returning to the lineup.

100 - Just 4:39 after Byron found the back of the net, Andrew Shaw scored the 100th goal of his NHL career to put the Canadiens up 3-1. Shaw's milestone marker came in his 466th NHL game. Jonathan Drouin and Jesperi Kotkaniemi collected the helpers on the play.

4 - Drouin extended his point streak to four straight games with that assist. He now has six points (1g - 5a) during that span, as he continues to chip in offensively night after night.

13 - Number of goals Brendan Gallagher has so far this season, tying Max Domi for the team lead in that department when he upped the Canadiens' lead to 4-2 at the 3:19 mark of the third period. It was Gallagher's second goal in as many games.

6 - Number of multi-point games Petry has on his resume so far this season, achieving that feat once again on Thursday night when he picked up an assist on Gallagher's goal in the final frame.
