That was at 3:09 of the first period. Pacioretty then found the empty net on a breakaway at 19:29 to seal the deal. Pacioretty, 26, is coming off a season in which he scored 37 goals and should prove to be a valuable fantasy forward once again. Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Montreal Wednesday night.

Max Pacioretty is honored to be named the 29th captain in the history of the Montreal Canadiens.

The sniper was voted team captain by his teammates earlier in the week with the announcement coming earlier today.
