TAMPA - Here's a numerical look at Thursday night's tilt between the Canadiens and Lightning at Amalie Arena.


600 - Max Pacioretty played his 600th career NHL game on Thursday, all of them with the Canadiens. The Habs' captain's first contest in a Montreal uniform came back on January 2, 2009 against New Jersey. Pacioretty scored his very first NHL goal that night, a first-period marker that would tie things up 1-1, although the Canadiens would end up losing 4-1 to the Devils.

95 - Number of points Jonathan Drouin recorded in 164 games with the Lightning between 2014-15 and 2016-17. Drouin was facing his former team for the first time since being traded to the Canadiens this summer.

3 - Carey Price was back in nets to face the Lightning, less than 24 hours after he played the Hurricanes in Carolina. It was the third time this season Price had played both nights of a back-to-back set, with the previous two occurrences coming against the Capitals and Rangers (Oct. 7 and 8) and the Senators and Red Wings (Nov. 29 and 30).

11 - Number of different players who recorded at least one shot on net in the first period on Thursday night. The Habs, who were trailing 11-1 in shots after seven minutes, finished the opening frame with 13 to the Lightning's 14.

71 - The Habs won 71% of their faceoffs in the first period, with Brendan Gallagher winning all three draws he took.

15 - Charles Hudon earned his 15th point of the season on Gallagher's 15th goal of the year in the second period - the game's opening goal, which was scored on the power play.
