by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

MONTREAL – Here's a numerical look at Tuesday night's game between the Canadiens and the Senators.



4 – Number of goals scored by Ottawa native Paul Byron in seven games against his hometown team – the most he’s scored against any NHL opponent – prior to suiting up against the Sens for the first time as a member of the Habs on Tuesday night.

59 – Consecutive number of games in which Brendan Gallagher has managed to record at least one shot on goal, firing another in Craig Anderson’s direction to continue a streak that dates back to February 2015.

Ottawa native Paul Byron has four goals in seven career games against the Sens.

2 – Number of power play points racked up by Dale Weise in his career, beating Craig Anderson with the man advantage in the second period on Tuesday after first registering a power play marker on December 13, 2013 against the Oilers while a member of the Canucks.

7 – Number of goals scored by Weise in 14 games so far in 2015-16, six more than he had in that span to start last season when he finished with a career-high 10 goals on the campaign.

13 – Number of points racked up by Andrei Markov in 14 games this season following his assist on Weise’s second period marker, tying him for first among all NHL defensemen in that category with Dallas blue-liner, John Klingberg.

13 – Number of times Byron has dished out four or more hits in a game in his NHL career, throwing his 5-foot-8 frame around against the Sens to lead the Habs in that category with five hits on Tuesday night.

2 – Number of times the Canadiens have been held to two or fewer goals in a game this season, managing to get just one by Anderson on Tuesday despite coming into the night as the second-highest scoring team in the NHL, averaging 3.85 goals per game.

67 – Percentage of faceoffs won by the Canadiens on Tuesday night, led by Torrey Mitchell’s 11 wins on 16 draws in the outing.

8 – Number of times the Habs have had 30 or more shots in a game this season, doing so in 57 percent of their games to date after hitting the mark with five minutes to go in the third period against the Sens.

1 – Number of times the Habs have seen 3-on-3 overtime so far in the regular season, needing extra time to determine a winner for the first time in 2015-16 on Tuesday night.
