MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game against the Florida Panthers at the Bell Centre.

7 - Tuesday's contest marked the final tilt in the Canadiens' seventh set of back-to-back games so far this season. Claude Julien's contingent will begin their eighth on Friday night when they battle the Blue Jackets in Columbus, before returning home to Montreal to square off against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

7 - Number of minutes that elapsed in the first period before the Canadiens managed to generate a shot on Panthers starting goaltender James Reimer, as the Florida defense kept the Habs at bay.

15 - Number of saves Canadiens starter Antti Niemi made during the first period alone on Tuesday night. Only Mike Hoffman managed to put the puck past him, finding the back of the net on a breakaway to give the Panthers a 1-0 lead through 20 minutes of play. The Habs were outshot 16-7 during the opening frame.

29 - Number of seconds that elapsed in the second period when captain Shea Weber blasted a shot past Reimer on the power play to tie things up. It was his seventh goal of the season and his first since January 5 against Nashville, snapping a five-game goal drought.

4 - Number of consecutive seasons in which Joel Armia has reached the double-digit mark in points, accomplishing that feat once again on Tuesday night by collecting an assist on Weber's goal. It was his sixth helper of the season.

8 - Number of goals Phillip Danault has so far this season after scoring during the second period to put the Canadiens up 2-1. That matched his goal total from all of last year when he suited up for 52 games. It also snapped a seven-game goal drought.

20 - Number of assists Tomas Tatar boasts on the year after collecting a helper on Domi's goal. It was the fifth time in Tatar's career that he reached the 20-assist plateau in a single campaign.

100 - Jordie Benn picked his 100th career NHL point with an assist on Jesperi Kotkaniemi's goal in the final frame that gave the Canadiens a 4-1 lead.
