MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Canadiens and the Bruins at the Bell Centre.

3 - Saturday night's contest marked the first of three meetings between the Bruins and the Canadiens over the next week. The two clubs will meet again in Boston Wednesday night, before doing battle once more on Saturday night back at the Bell Centre.

335 - Number of days that elapsed in between regular-season games between the two Atlantic Division rivals. Prior to going head-to-head on Saturday night, the Bruins and the Canadiens hadn't done battle since February 12, 2017, with Montreal dropping a 4-0 decision at TD Garden.

1 - Claude Julien went up against his former team for the first time on Saturday night since the Bruins let him go last February. Julien spent 10 years behind the bench in Boston between the 2007-08 and 2016-17 campaigns, coaching 759 regular-season games and winning a Stanley Cup in 2011.

100 - Number of games Artturi Lehkonen has played in a Canadiens uniform, including Saturday night's tilt against the Bruins. The 22-year-old winger debuted in the NHL ranks last season after making the jump to the North American ranks from the Swedish Elite League.

3 - Number of consecutive games in which captain Max Pacioretty has found the back of the net after getting the Canadiens on the board early on Saturday night with his 11th goal of the season at the 3:22 mark of the opening frame.
