MONTREAL - Here's a numerical look at Friday night's game against the Flyers at the Bell Centre.

383 – Number of days that have elapsed since Lucas Lessio last set foot on the Bell Centre ice, with his last appearance dating back to February 1, 2015 when he battled the Canadiens as a member of the Arizona Coyotes. Friday night’s tilt against Philadelphia marked Lessio’s Bell Centre debut as a member of the CH.

41 – Number of assists P.K. Subban has collected during the 2015-16 campaign. The Norris Trophy winning defenseman hit the 40-assist mark for a third straight year on Friday night by picking up a helper on Dale Weise’s first period tally that opened the scoring, before adding another on Max Pacioretty's goal in the final frame. They were the  210th and 211th assists of Subban’s career.

2 – Number of NHL defensemen who've amassed at least 40 assists in each of the last three seasons, including P.K. Subban and Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators.

67 – Percentage of Andrei Markov’s seasons in the NHL ranks in which the Russian rearguard has hit the 30-point plateau, accomplishing that feat once again on Friday night by picking up an assist on Weise’s tally. It was the 10th time that Markov has amassed at least 30 points in a single campaign dating back to his debut in 2000-01.

14 – Number of times this season in which P.K. Subban and Andrei Markov have combined their efforts on a given goal, doing it again on Friday night on Weise’s marker. The two defensemen are steadily approaching their total of 23 from last season when they were the CH’s most productive duo.

– Percentage of defensive zone draws Tomas Plekanec won through two periods of play on Friday night. The Canadiens' No. 14 entered the contest by winning an average of 53.1 percent of those faceoffs per outing this season.

25 – Number of times over the course of his NHL career that Max Pacioretty has dished out at least four hits in a single game, making his presence felt once again on Friday night by reaching that mark.

13:37 – Defenseman Tom Gilbert's workload on Friday night before being unable to return after the second period due to a lower-body injury.

9 – Number of multi-point games P.K. Subban has registered during the 2015-16 campaign. His two helpers on Friday night tied him for top spot on the team in that department alongside Max Pacioretty.

38 – Percentage of Max Pacioretty's goals this season that have been scored on the power play, as the Canadiens' captain registered his eighth goal of the year while Michel Therrien's troops were up a man. It tied the score 2-2 during the third period.
