MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Thursday night's 3-0 loss to the Minnesota Wild at the Bell Centre.

200 - Thursday night's contest was Claude Julien's 200th behind the Canadiens bench. He coached 159 games from 2002-03 to 2005-06 before returning behind the bench last February. He has a 95-78-10-17 record with the club.

1 - Shea Weber (lower-body) and Jonathan Drouin (upper-body) both missed their first game of the season. The two are listed as day-to-day. There should be updates on their statuses at Friday's practice at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard.

1 - Byron Froese drew into the lineup on Thursday against Minnesota, marking his first game in a Canadiens uniform. He was slotted in on the fourth line with Jacob de la Rose and Charles Hudon, and he skated for 7:20 of ice time. Froese, named captain of the Habs' minor-league affiliate on Friday, has recorded 11 points (3G, 8A) in 13 games with the Rocket so far this season.

41 - Shots taken by the Canadiens on Devan Dubnyk, including 17 in the second period alone. It was the seventh time they got 40 or more shots or more this season.

3 - Charlie Lindgren got his third straight start in net for the Habs, the sixth of his career. On Thursday, he got to face the team he grew up watching - Lindgren is from Lakeville, MN, 30 minutes away from the Wild's home in Saint Paul.

2 - Number of penalty minutes accorded to Lindgren, who got his first career NHL penalty after sending the puck over the glass. He got two minutes for delay of game, and Charles Hudon served in the box.

26 - With Weber sitting out, Jeff Petry finished the game with the most ice time for Montreal. Claude Julien sent him out for a total of 26:27.
