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

18 - Number of major titles World Golf Hall-of-Famer Jack Nicklaus claimed over the course of his illustrious career, tops on the all-time list among male golfers. The now 76-year-old Ohio native, who was in attendance at the Bell Centre on Tuesday night, read out the starting lineup in the Canadiens' dressing room prior to the game against the Boston Bruins.

14 - Number of saves Carey Price made during the first period alone on Tuesday night as the Bruins pressed for the game's opening goal. The All-World netminder was stellar early on, though, as per usual, denying Claude Julien's contingent during a scoreless first period.

4 - Number of power play goals Shea Weber has amassed so far this season, which has him tied for the league lead in that department. Weber lit the lamp with a wicked slap shot from the top of the circle that left Bruins goaltender Zane McIntyre helpless as the Canadiens took the 1-0 lead just under four minutes into the second period.

17 - Spot Tomas Plekanec now occupies on his own on the Canadiens' all-time playmakers list after picking up the secondary assist on Weber's power play marker. The 341st helper of Plekanec's career helped him surpass Dickie Moore in that department as he continues to climb in the Canadiens' record books.

20 - Number of seconds that elapsed between the time Bruins defenseman Colin Miller tied things up 1-1 at the 4:48 mark of the second period and Alex Galchenyuk responded to put the Canadiens up 2-1 by converting a feed from Alexander Radulov and going upstairs on the backhand on McIntyre at 5:08.

77 - Percentage of the Canadiens' games so far this season in which Galchenyuk has registered his name on the scoresheet, keeping his strong start going with his fifth goal of the year on Tuesday night. Galchenyuk has only been held without a point in three of 13 games dating back to the season opener on October 13.

8 - Number of shots Jeff Petry managed to block on Tuesday night against the Bruins, setting a new career-high for himself in that department dating back to his NHL debut in 2010-11. He surpassed his previous record of seven.
