DETROIT - Here's a numerical look at some of the stats, facts and figures from Saturday's 3-2 overtime win against the Red Wings.

39 - Number of times the Canadiens have visited Joe Louis Arena in franchise history. Saturday's game marked the club's final stop at the iconic barn, as the 38-year-old arena is set to close its doors on Sunday.

82 - Number of games now in the books, as the Habs wrapped up the regular season portion of their schedule in Detroit.

170 - Number of days since Mikhail Sergachev had last suited up for the Canadiens, on October 20 opposite Arizona. On Saturday, the 18-year-old defenseman was called up from the Windsor Spitfires and quickly joined the big club on the other side of the Detroit River.

8 - Number of Habs regulars who were not in action at the Joe, as Shea Weber, Alexei Emelin, Alexander Radulov, Max Pacioretty, Andrei Markov and Carey Price did not travel with their teammates. Jordie Benn and Tomas Plekanec meanwhile were in the building, but not in uniform.
 
2 - Number of new jerseys with a letter stitched to them in Detroit, as Jeff Petry and Steve Ott shared alternate captain duties at the Joe in Pacioretty, Plekanec, and Markov's absences.

4 - Number of goals this season for Nathan Beaulieu, who got the Habs on the board against Detroit. Prior to the current campaign, Beaulieu had three goals in his first four seasons -- one less than through 74 games in 2016-17 alone.

18 - Number of goals this season for Artturi Lehkonen, who tied Mikko Rantanen for 8th place league-wide among rookie goalscorers on Saturday.

103 - Number of points the Habs finish the regular season with -- a 21-point improvement over last year's 82, and good for first place in the Atlantic Division.

ON THIS DAY IN 1978…
Guy Lafleur pots his 59th and 60th goals of the season in a 5-1 Canadiens win over Detroit… He becomes the second Canadiens' player to score 60 goals in a season (Steve Shutt, 1976-77).
