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

19 - Number of points the Canadiens have amassed through the first 10 games of the regular season with a victory on Wednesday night over the Vancouver Canucks, setting a new franchise mark for the highest point total any Canadiens squad has amassed in team history after 10 outings. Last year, Michel Therrien's troops collected 18 points through 10 games, matching the mark set in 1943-44.

4 - With a win on Wednesday night, the 2016-17 edition of the Canadiens also became the fourth squad in team history to go undefeated in regulation time through the first 10 games of the season. The feat was previously accomplished by Canadiens teams in 1943-44, 1972-73 and 1981-82.

853 - Number of games centerman Tomas Plekanec has suited up for with the Canadiens, including Wednesday night's tilt against Vancouver, which moves him into a tie for 16th spot with Hall-of-Famer Jacques Lemaire on the team's all-time games played list. 

52 - Number of consecutive games in which defenseman Nathan Beaulieu was held without a goal before he broke things open with his first goal of the season at the 12:22 mark of the second period on Wednesday night. The Canadiens' No. 28 had previously lit the lamp on November 20, 2015 in a 5-3 win over the New York Islanders at Barclays Center.

2 - Number of games - out of the 10 the Canadiens have played so far this season - in which Alex Galchenyuk has failed to register his name on the scoresheet, as the American sniper picked up the secondary assist on Beaulieu's tally on Wednesday night. It was Galchenyuk's sixth helper of the season. He later added his seventh assist on Alexander Radulov's empty-netter in the third period.

5 - Number of goals Torrey Mitchell has scored since the start of the year, which has him leading the squad in that department. Mitchell completed a remarkable three-way passing play involving Brian Flynn and Phillip Danault before he beat Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller to give the Canadiens a 2-0 lead.

31 - Number of saves Carey Price made through 40 minutes of play on Wednesday night as the Canadiens' netminder kept his team in the game when Vancouver was dominating in shots in both the first and second frames. 

11 - Number of consecutive regular-season home victories Price has posted on Bell Centre ice, including Wednesday night's win over the Canucks. The last time the All-World netminder failed to earn a victory in Montreal was back on April 2, 2015 in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals.
