BOSTON - Here's numerical look at the Canadiens' second game in two nights on Saturday against the Bruins at TD Garden.

4,649 - Number of kilometers the Canadiens have left to travel on their six-game, 12-day road trip. They arrived in Boston Friday night after their game in Brooklyn. Next up on the agenda is a Tuesday night dance with the Devils in Newark.

2 - There were two Shaws on the ice for the Canadiens for the first time. Logan Shaw made his way back into the lineup on Saturday in Boston, while Andrew Shaw played his third game since returning from injury. Logan had an L. next to his last name on the back of his jersey as a result.

303 - Number of games former captain Brian Gionta played for the Canadiens. The 39-year-old winger signed as a free agent by the Bruins following his participation in the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang. Gionta was a member of the Canadiens from 2009-10 to 2013-14, recording 173 points (97G, 76A), and helped the Canadiens reach the Eastern Conference finals in both 2010 and 2014.

2 - Brendan Gallagher opened the scoring for the Canadiens for a second straight game, although he was a little less quick this time around. Gallagher's wrister tricked Bruins backstop Anton Khudobin and made its way to the back of the net at 9:16 of the first, although he scored just 88 seconds into the game in Brooklyn the night before. The goal against the Bruins was the 25-year-old's 23rd marker of the season, leaving him one shy of his career high from 2014-15, and it extended Gallagher's points streak to three games.

3 - Gallagher has strung together a three-game points streak. The fiery winger has eight points in his last nine games (3G, 5A).

48 - Antti Niemi sparkled in nets for the Habs on Saturday. He made 48 saves and held off a hungry Bruins team in protecting a 1-0 lead, but lost the shutout with 2:45 to play in regulation.
