5 - Number of Habs to hit double-digits points so far this season. Pacioretty became the fifth on Tuesday, joining Brendan Gallagher, Shea Weber, Jonathan Drouin and Phillip Danault in that category.

0 - Number of career NHL losses for Lindgren. With the win over Vegas, the up-and-coming Habs netminder remains undefeated in the big league through five games (5-0-0), allowing just seven goals over that span.
