A numerical look at Tuesday's preseason tilt in Quebec City

by Montreal Canadiens @CanadiensMTL /

Quick hits, stats, and facts from Tuesday's game against the Bruins in Quebec City.

10 - Number of days since Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin last suited up for a game, dating back to a September 24 tilt against Team Canada at the World Cup. The Russian blue-liners were back in their NHL uniforms for their first preseason game of 2016-17 on Tuesday night.  

293 - Number of points - regular season and playoffs included - amassed by Alexander Radulov during his two seasons with the Remparts, from 2004 to 2006, with the Russian winger making his return to his former Junior home for the first time on Tuesday night.  

3 - Number of former or current Habs who have banners in their honor hanging in the Videotron Centre rafters, including Radulov and Guy Lafleur, whose Nos. 22 and 4, respectively, have been retired by the Quebec Remparts, in addition to former Remparts head coach, Patrick Roy who coached the team from 2003 to 2013.

3 - Number of rookies in the Canadiens' veteran-laden lineup against the Bruins, a trio made up of Michael McCarron, Artturi Lehkonen, and Mikhail Sergachev, who are all still looking to crack the team's opening night roster.

7 - Number of times the Canadiens have made the trek to Quebec City for a preseason game since the Nordiques left town, with Tuesday marking the team's second visit to the Videotron Centre since the tradition began in 2009.

15 - Number of players who have scored at least one goal for the Canadiens since the preseason began, with Jeff Petry, Alex Galchenyuk, and Artturi Lehkonen each adding their names to that list against Boston. Lehkonen's goal was also the first of his career in a Habs uniform.

7 - Number of points racked up by Nathan Beaulieu in four preseason games so far in 2016-17, tying him with Sens forward Phil Varone for the NHL lead in that category.

2:31 - Amount of time needed by the Canadiens to erase a two-goal deficit in the second period, with Petry and Lehkonen scoring less than three minutes apart to knot the game at two.
