Summer about over for Habs’ Pacioretty

The game remains a wonderful, enduring memory for Max Pacioretty, a match that counted not for a single point in the standings, one that did nothing to fatten his statistics. This was a mostly meaningless 2-1 preseason Canadiens victory over the Detroit Red Wings at the Bell Centre on Sept. 30, 2008. But for a variety of reasons, it meant the world to Pacioretty, then 19 and in...

Habs' Pacioretty closing in on 40-goal season

The Detroit net was empty with a minute and change to play Saturday, the Canadiens up 5-3, and Max Pacioretty was on the Habs bench, a yawning Red Wings cage perhaps hungry to swallow his 40th goal. “Nah, I don’t want that,” Pacioretty joked in an empty dressing room much later. “I’d have gone out there, if asked, but I’d be looking to pass in that situation.” The...

Did Pacioretty get bitten during scrum?

It's no secret that the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens do not get along. It's also no secret that teams get chippy during one-sided blowouts, as the game between the two teams on Saturday night demonstrated in clear fashion.
