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

400 - Number of career games played by Paul Byron in the NHL. The forward made his return to the Canadiens lineup on Tuesday night after having missed six games with an injury to his arm. He didn't take long to make an impact, burying a rebound from Jesperi Kotkaniemi to tally his 11th of the season. Byron has 81 goals for 164 points in the League thus far. The Ottawa native has played 262 games with the Habs, 130 with the Calgary Flames, and eight with the Buffalo Sabres.

20 - Max Domi opened the scoring with his 20th goal of the season, the first time in his NHL career that he had reached the plateau. The 23-year-old had matched and then surpassed his previous career high for goals over the weekend when he scored his 18th and 19th of the season in Florida. Domi now has 56 goals and 131 assists in 282 career contests with the Canadiens and Arizona Coyotes. He leads Montreal with 52 points (20G, 32A) in 60 games in 2018-19, and also becomes the second Habs player to reach the 20-goal mark this season after Brendan Gallagher.

325 - Shea Weber earned his 325th career assist on Byron's goal. The captain has 48 helpers in 140 games in a Canadiens uniform. Weber owns 198 career goals for 523 points in 903 games in the NHL with the Habs and Nashville Predators.

19 - After earning two assists against the Blue Jackets, Jesperi Kotkaniemi overtook Mario Tremblay (1974-75) and Petr Svoboda (1984-85) for most helpers by an 18-year-old in Canadiens history.

3 - With the win, the Habs ended their longest regulation losing streak of the season at three games. Prior to playing Columbus, the Canadiens had suffered defeats at the hands of the Nashville Predators, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Florida Panthers. They had also lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs before departing for Nashville, but that game was decided in overtime. This was Montreal's 32nd win of the season.
