DETROIT -- Here's a numerical look at some of the afternoon's stats, facts and figures from Monday's Habs game in Detroit.

3:00 p.m. -- Start time for Monday's rare afternoon game in Detroit, as the United States observed Martin Luther King Day. It was the second of five matinees the Habs will take part in this season, but the only one to fall on a weekday.

31 -- Number of different skaters who have now suited up for the Habs, as Jacob De La Rose became the latest on Monday at Joe Louis Arena. The 21-year-old took part in his first game of the current NHL campaign after being called up from the St. John's IceCaps on Sunday.

11 -- Number of combined shots goaltenders Carey Price and Jared Coreau faced -- six by Detroit and five by Montreal, respectively -- during a quiet opening frame in Hockeytown. Price was nevertheless the tougher tested of the two, making a superb glove save on Andreas Athanasiou to keep things scoreless in the first.

294 -- Number of days since the Habs last dropped a game to the Red Wings, dating back to a 4-3 decision at the Joe on March 24, 2016.

2 -- Number of times the Canadiens have been shutout this season, after getting blanked for just the second time through 45 games on Monday.
