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

139 - By sporting a Canadiens jersey for the very first time this year on Tuesday night against the Florida Panthers, forward Chris Terry took part in the 139th game of his NHL career, his first NHL appearance since April 9th when he was still a member of the Carolina Hurricanes.

3 - Defenseman Greg Pateryn returned to the lineup on Tuesday night after watching the Canadiens' three previous outings as a healthy scratch. 

11 - By picking up an assist on Max Pacioretty's goal at the 2:12 mark of the first period, David Desharnais snapped an 11-game pointless streak that dated back to October 22.

3 - Pacioretty's goal, a power play marker, ensured that the Canadiens lit the lamp with the man advantage for a third consecutive game. The power forward beat Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo with a lightning-quick wrist shot for his fourth goal of the season.

2 - On Tuesday night against the Panthers, Desharnais registered his second multi-point game of the season. On top of his helper on Pacioretty's goal, the Canadiens' No. 51 added a goal of his own at the 4:22 mark of the middle frame. His previous multi-point game came in the home opener on October 18 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

6 - Number of consecutive games in which defenseman Andrei Markov has registered his name on the scoresheet after picking up the lone assist on Desharnais' third goal of the season. The Russian rearguard has eight points (2g-6a) during that span.

234 - Terry was also credited with an assist on Desharnais' tally, as he collected his first point in the NHL ranks since March 26 with Carolina, a span of 234 days.

100 - Number of assists Alex Galchenyuk has collected over the course of his NHL career, reaching that mark on Tuesday night by picking up the secondary helper on Paul Byron's sixth goal of the season that tied things up 3-3 at 5:46 of the third period.
