Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty has been suspended three games by the NHL for a hit to the head of Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang.
The league made the announcement Monday night, hours after Pacioretty had a hearing over the phone with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan.
Pacioretty struck Letang in the head with his shoulder with 3:14 left in the third period of Montreal...
Do it. Get him. This team is still, imho 1 more legitimate offensive weapon away from being a Stanley Cup favorite. You have the chance to get a multiple 30 goal scorer on a favorable contract who is just now entering the prime of his career, you do it. End of story. This is why the Rangers have these assets, to make moves when they are ready…and they are ready, now.

Montreal Canadiens left wing Max Pacioretty will have a phone hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan on Monday following his hit on Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang.
Pacioretty lowered the boom on Letang, who ended up with a broken nose. Letang would get the last word after returning to net the overtime game-winning goal in a 4-3 triumph on Saturday.
There will be outrage in Montreal. Or should I say more outrage. After all, self-righteous indignation seems to have become the Province of Quebec's primary export these days. But Canadiens fans don't have much of an argument against the three-game suspension handed down to Habs forward Max Pacioretty on Monday night for his illegal hit to the head on Pittsburgh's Kris...
Montreal Canadians forward Max Pacioretty has a phone call from Brendan Shanahan on Monday, I am going to say that Pacioretty gets a one - two game suspension for this hit on Letang. This is the type of hits that the NHL is trying to eliminate. The impressive fact was that Letang went to the locker room and had his nose set and then returned to the game to score the game winning...

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out, Your Montreal Canadiens are, at best, a mediocre hockey team that faces a steep uphill climb to make the playoffs.
If you figure 96 points punches a ticket to the postseason dance, the Canadiens will have to reap 72 from their remaining 57 games.
Sure … if you believe the team we saw in Anaheim is capable of putting together a winning...
One of the hallmarks of the Brendan Shanahan-led NHL Department of Player Safety has been a shared responsibility between the player hitting and the player being hit.
The high hit administered by Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty on Saturday night that broke the nose of Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang offered its share of challenges, from the principal of contact...
