OTTAWA - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Canadiens and Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre.

2 - Number of times during the 2015-16 campaign in which goaltender Al Montoya made consecutive starts with the Florida Panthers. In Carey Price's absence, Montoya made his second straight start on Saturday night against Ottawa after being between the pipes in the season-opener on Thursday.

8 - Number of days that elapsed since Jeff Petry went down with a lower-body injury in the Canadiens' preseason finale on October 6, and his first appearance of the regular season on Saturday night at the Canadian Tire Centre.

4 - Number of Canadiens players who dished out at least three hits during Saturday night's tilt, with Shea Weber leading the way with five of his own.

256 - By finding the back of the net on the power play during the second period in Ottawa, Jeff Petry lit the lamp for the first time since February 2 against the Philadelphia Flyers, a span of 256 days between goals.

1 - Petry's tally with the man advantage was the Canadiens' first power play marker of the year. Michel Therrien's troops ultimately got their power play rolling with a pair of goals while up a man against the Senators on Saturday night.

30 - Number of assists Nathan Beaulieu has amassed over the course of his NHL career, adding to that tally by picking up the primary assist on Petry's first goal of the season in the middle frame. The Strathroy, ON native was playing in his 153rd career game on Saturday night.

2:50 - Mark of the third period when Artturi Lehkonen put a loose puck past Senators netminder Craig Anderson to tie things up 2-2. It marked the first goal of the 21-year-old Finnish forward's NHL career.

2 - Number of multi-goal games Petry has registered over the course of his NHL career, accomplishing that feat once again on Saturday night when his blast from the point early in the third period found the back of the net to put the Canadiens up 3-2. The Michigan native last scored twice in a single game back on November 20, 2015 in a 5-3 win over the New York Islanders.
