MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at the Canadiens' win over the Panthers at the Bell Centre on Tuesday night.

10 - It's been 10 days since the Canadiens last played at the Bell Centre. The last home game was on October 14 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Tuesday night's game was the Habs' ninth of the 2017-18 season, but only their third in Montreal.

600 - Karl Alzner played the 600th NHL game of his 10-year career. It was also the 549th consecutive game he has played, a streak that dates back to the start of the 2010-11 season.

17 - Only 17 seconds separated the Canadiens' second and third goals of the night. First, Shea Weber did what he does best and unleashed a rocket that found its way to the back of the net. Moments later, Brendan Gallagher unleashed a wrister that fooled Reimer. The two goals came late in the second and gave the Canadiens a 3-1 lead to close out the period.

1:35 - The Canadiens scored three goals in a span of 1:35 in the second period. Alex Galchenyuk got the Canadiens on the board first, followed shortly thereafter by Weber and Gallagher. They took 15 shots in the second to the Panthers' six.

3 - With his third goal of the season - an unassisted even-strength marker at 18:19 of the second - Gallagher took the reins as his team's top goal scorer for 2017-18. Weber joined him at No. 1 midway through the final frame with his second goal of the night.

50% - The Habs were successful in half of their power play opportunities in the middle frame. The Panthers took four penalties in the second - including a pair of slashing calls against Pointe Claire native Mike Matheson - and Montreal capitalized with goals from Galchenyuk and Weber.

3 - With two assists on the night, Tuesday's game against Florida marked the third time in five outings that Jonathan Drouin has collected two points. He scored a goal and an assist against both Toronto (Oct. 14) and San Jose (Oct. 17).
