MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Wednesday night's game between the Canadiens and the Senators at the Bell Centre.

5 - Wednesday night's contest marked the start of the Canadiens' fifth set of back-to-back games on the year. Claude Julien's troops will be back in action on Thursday night when they battle the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena.

322 - Number of points (120 g, 202 a) newly-minted Hall-of-Famer Mark Recchi amassed in 346 career games in a Canadiens uniform between the 1994-95 and 1998-99 campaigns. Recchi was honored at the Bell Centre prior to puck drop on Wednesday night in recognition of his recent induction into the pantheon of hockey.

1 - Goaltender Mike Condon made his first start against the Canadiens on Wednesday night since departing Montreal after being claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Penguins on October 11, 2016. Three weeks later, the Senators acquired Condon's services in a trade.

25 - Number of games defenseman David Schlemko spent on the sidelines before finally making his Habs debut on Wednesday night. Schlemko, who suffered a hand injury in training camp that ultimately required surgery, took Victor Mete's spot in the lineup against the Senators.

2 - The Canadiens gave up just their second short-handed goal of the season on Wednesday night when Mark Stone beat Carey Price on a breakaway at the 4:36 mark of the first period to give the Senators a 1-0 lead. The only other time they conceded a goal against while on the power play was back on November 9 against the Minnesota Wild.

1,112 - Number of days that have passed since the Canadiens last converted a penalty shot, before Jonathan Drouin beat Condon in the middle frame on his one-on-one opportunity to tie things up 1-1. It was the first penalty shot snipe of Drouin's career. Prior to that, Dale Weise was the last Canadiens player to tickle the twine under those circumstances all the way back on November 13, 2014.

14 - Number of consecutive games Phillip Danault went without a goal before lighting the lamp in the second period on Wednesday night to give the Canadiens a 2-1 lead. Danault's fourth tally of the 2017-18 campaign was his first since scoring twice against the New York Rangers on October 28.
