MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Tuesday's game between the Canadiens and the Canucks in Montreal.

0 – Number of people who remained seated as the Canadiens paid tribute to Mr. Jean Béliveau prior to Tuesday night’s tilt against the Vancouver Canucks at the Bell Centre. Fans got out of their seats in unison to celebrate the memory of the hockey legend after a moment of silence was observed in his honor before puck drop.

21,286 – Number of Bell Centre seats that are now available for spectators after the 21,287th seat, that of Mr. Béliveau located in section 102 Row EE Seat 1, was left vacant for Tuesday night’s contest and decorated with a No. 4 seat cover to honor the legend’s memory forever.

29 – Number of games forwards Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais played alongside one another on the same line during the 2014-15 campaign before being placed on different units for the tilt against the Canucks on Tuesday night. Pacioretty lined up with Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher, while Desharnais centered a line with Michael Bournival and Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau.

15 – Number of games Michael Bournival missed with a shoulder injury before making his return to the Canadiens’ lineup on Tuesday night against the Canucks. Bournival suffered the injury back on November 5 in Buffalo.

83 – Faceoff percentage registered by Alex Galchenyuk during the first period on Tuesday night. Galchenyuk won five of the six draws he took against Canucks centermen through 20 minutes of play, showcasing just how comfortable he really is at the pivot position. Only Brad Richardson managed to best him in the faceoff circle.

100 – Percentage of musical interludes that came courtesy of organist Diane Bibeau on Tuesday night at the Bell Centre, as the Canadiens turned back the clock to the days when Jean Béliveau played in front of fans at the Montreal Forum.

10 – Number of points amassed by Max Pacioretty in 10 career games against the Vancouver Canucks. Pacioretty picked up an assist on Brendan Gallagher’s second-period tally on Tuesday night. He now boasts five goals and five assists against the British Columbia based franchise.

6 – Number of teams against whom Brendan Gallagher has yet to light the lamp, removing the Canucks from that list on Tuesday night by tallying his first career marker against Vancouver to get the Canadiens on the board in the second period. Gallagher hasn’t scored against the Flames, the Panthers, the Kings, the Coyotes, the Sharks and the Capitals.

100 - Percentage of games played by Sven Andrighetto in which the young gun has registered at least a point. Andrighetto scored his first NHL goal on Saturday night in Dallas, and picked up an assist on Tomas Plekanec's late strike in the third period against Vancouver.
