MONTREAL -- Here's a numerical look at Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the visiting Blue Jackets.

10 -- Number of days since Georges St-Pierre came out of retirement and became the UFC's new middleweight champion by defeating Michael Bisping at UFC 217. The Quebec native was on-hand at the Bell Centre on Tuesday to drop the ceremonial first puck.

300 -- Number of career NHL games for Paul Byron. The speedy forward hit the milestone on Tuesday at the Bell Centre, in what was his 162nd game as a Hab.

7 -- Number of defensemen who suited up for Montreal against Columbus. The Canadiens were without forward Torrey Mitchell, who was sidelined with flu symptoms, leaving room for the extra rearguard.

7:06 -- Number of minutes of ice time for Victor Mete on Tuesday. The 19-year-old D-man notably moonlighted as a forward for parts of the night on a line with Jacob de la Rose and Byron Froese in Mitchell's absence.

7:46 -- Number of minutes left on the clock when Byron got the Habs on the board with a big third-period equalizer.

2 -- Number of consecutive games which have now gone to extra time, following Saturday's OT win against Buffalo.

0 -- Number of times goaltender Charlie Lindgren has allowed more than two goals so far in his eight career NHL games. The 23-year-old continued that trend on Tuesday night, being beaten just twice on 25 shots.
