MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Monday night's game between the Canadiens and the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Bell Centre.

0 - Number of lineup changes head coach Claude Julien elected to make for the tilt against the Blue Jackets, meaning that both Shea Weber and David Schlemko were not in the lineup for the Canadiens. In Weber's case, it marked his fourth straight game on the sidelines due to a lower-body injury.

200 - Brendan Gallagher reached the 200-point plateau for his NHL career early in the first period when he beat Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky for the game's opening goal. Gallagher reached the milestone in his 349th game with the Habs.

10 - Gallagher became the first player on the Canadiens' roster to hit the double-digit mark in the goal-scoring department this season when he lit the lamp at the 3:11 mark of the opening frame. He matched his goal total from all of last year with the snipe.

8 - Jonathan Drouin snapped an eight-game goal drought with his fourth goal of the season on Monday night to put the Canadiens up 2-0 in the first period. Drouin's marker, which was scored on the power play, was his first since November 5 against the Chicago Blackhawks.

2 - Alex Galchenyuk picked up his second point in as many games against the Blue Jackets this season on Monday night, collecting an assist on Drouin's tally.

96:08 - Dating back to Saturday night's game against the Buffalo Sabres, Carey Price held the opposition without a goal for 96:08 before Blue Jackets forward Pierre-Luc Dubois found the back of the net at the 16:08 mark of the second period to cut the Canadiens' lead to 2-1.

12,000 - Number of goals the Canadiens have scored on home turf in franchise history after Andrew Shaw scored an empty-netter to clinch the victory over Columbus.
