Max Pacioretty was not able to play in Thursday's preseason match because he was sick.

His spot on the top line was occupied by Sven Andrighetto instead. Pacioretty should be considered day-to-day for now.

Team USA head coach John Tortorella called out Max Pacioretty after Saturday's pre-tournament loss to Team Canada.

"He’s OK. Yeah. But I need more out of him," said Tortorella. "I know how he can play. And this is what happens in this type of tournament and the team make-up. You’re not going to get your 20 minutes. If other people are going, they tend to take some ice time. You look at … Canada’s team, your minutes are going to be down. But Max hasn’t … he’s got to give me some reason to give him more minutes here. So we’ll see where it goes. We know he’s a really good player. Great kid. But we’ve just got to get a little more out of him.

Max Pacioretty likes the changes the Canadiens made during the off-season.

Montreal added forwards Alexander Radulov and Andrew Shaw as well as defenseman Shea Weber after a disappointing season. "We needed to address a couple of things," Pacioretty said. "We needed to address power play, we needed to address scoring goals. We needed to be harder to play against. Those three areas I think we're a lot better in. Shawsy's very hard to play against. He can contribute, I think, in any role on the team. And Radulov, obviously, produces offense and he can help on the power play as well. And then Shea obviously had 20 goals last year, I think. We needed to score more goals, especially on the power play, so that's where he helps out a lot as well."

Although the 2015-16 regular season was disappointing for the Canadiens, it looks like they found a solid top line.

That line was made up of Alex Galchenyuk, Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher. Both Pacioretty and Galchenyuk hit the 30-goal mark while Gallagher would have at least come close had he not been injured twice this year. "I feel comfortable with the way our line finished," said Pacioretty. "We didn’t (have Gallagher) the whole time but, as a duo, (Galchenyuk) and I feel comfortable with each other. There are some areas where there’s room for improvement, but as soon as (Gallagher) came in, we became that much more dynamic."

Max Pacioretty reached the 30-goal plateau for the fourth time in his career during Saturday's 5-2 win over Tampa Bay.

Pacioretty scored two goals and three points to reach that mark, giving him 64 points across all 82 games. Not too shabby at all, as one of only a handful of players to reach as many goals this season.

Max Pacioretty notched a goal and an assist on Thursday night in Montreal's 4-2 win over Carolina.

The Habs may have been severely disappointing this season, but fantasy-wise Pacioretty has been alright. He has 28 goals and 61 points, just six shy of last season with one game remaining. His plus/minus has dropped 50 points though.

Max Pacioretty scored two goals in a 4-3 win over the Red Wings on Tuesday.

Paul Biron and Sven Andrighetto also scored for the Habs.

The Canadiens made too many defensive mistakes in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

"We’re in the games, but teams in the NHL are too good and they take advantage of turnovers and bad mistakes," Max Pacioretty said. "When you make a turnover to a guy like (Chris) Kreider, he’s going to win every foot race you give him. Part of it is also knowing the league, knowing who you’re playing against, knowing when you’re against a top line, knowing when you’re against a fast guy like (Kreider). We have to be a bit smarter." Alex Galchenyuk was the player who turned the puck over on Kreider's second goal.

Pacioretty scored two goals in the third period in less than a two-minute span. Even though Pacioretty is unlikely to come close to last season’s 37 goals and 67 points, he is on pace to reach 30 goals for the third consecutive season (fourth, if you count full seasons).
