MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Saturday night's game between the Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Bell Centre.

200 - Phillip Danault took part in his 200th career NHL game on Saturday night. He has been pivoting the Habs' top line between Tomas Tatar and Brendan Gallagher and has seven points (1G, 6A) in 13 games this season. Danault, 25, was acquired along with a second-round pick in 2018 from the Chicago Blackhawks in February 2016 in exchange for Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann. The Victoriaville native was Chicago's first-round pick (26th overall) in 2011.

10 - Max Domi opened the scoring just 0:58 into play with a nifty wrister that found its way past Lightning stater Andrei Vasilevskiy. The goal was the 10th point in nine games (7G, 3A) for Domi, who has collected at least a point in every game since October 15 except Tuesday's loss at home to the Dallas Stars. It was also the fourth time this season he had scored in the opening four minutes of play.

4 - Domi's early-game goal was the fourth time this season he had scored in the opening four minutes of play. He leads the Canadiens with 13 points in as many games.

32 - Carey Price made 32 saves on the Lightning, including a dazzling glove stop on Dan Girardi towards the end of the first period. It was his second-highest total of the season.
