WINNIPEG - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Canadiens and the Winnipeg Jets at Bell MTS Place.

3 - Saturday night's contest against the Winnipeg Jets marked the third set of back-to-back games the Canadiens will play this season. Claude Julien's troops will be back in action on Sunday night in Chicago. They still have 11 sets of back-to-back games left on their schedule.

35 - Number of games goaltender Al Montoya suited up for during his stint with the Winnipeg Jets between the 2012 and 2014 campaigns. Montoya made his third start of the season on Saturday night, getting the call in place of Carey Price, who is sidelined with a minor lower-body injury.

5 - Number of games defenseman Joe Morrow missed as a healthy scratch before being re-inserted into the lineup on Saturday night in place of Brandon Davidson. Prior to the tilt against the Jets, Morrow hadn't seen game action since October 20 in Anaheim.

11 - Number of Canadiens players who registered at least one shot on goal during the first period. Andrew Shaw was the most active of the bunch, with three shots to his credit, one of which found the back of the net. The Canadiens finished the frame with 17 shots on Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck.

2 - Shaw lit the lamp for the second consecutive game on Saturday night, beating Hellebuyck with a picture-perfect tip at the 19:18 mark of the first period to tie things up 1-1, before putting the Canadiens up 2-1 at 2:55 of the middle frame. Both goals were scored on the power play.

8 - Number of times Shaw has scored two goals in a single regular season game over the course of his NHL career, accomplishing the feat for the first time since Janury 12, 2016, when he was still a member of the Chicago Blackhawks.

3 - Number of players on the Canadiens' roster who've reached the double-digit mark in points on the year after Jonathan Drouin picked up the primary helper on Shaw's first tally, giving him 10 points (2g, 8a) so far this season. Then, Shea Weber collected the lone assist on Shaw's second goal to reach the 10-point mark and another one on Pacioretty's goal (3g, 8a) as well, joining Brendan Gallagher (6g, 5a).

4 - Number of consecutive games in which Gallagher has registered his name on the scoresheet after feeding Tomas Plekanec for the Canadiens' third goal of the game on Saturday night. Gallagher has six points (3g, 3a) during that span.

6 - Number of times the Canadiens have amassed at least 40 shots in a single game during the 2017-18 campaign. Julien's contingent did just that once again on Saturday night.
