Max Pacioretty's ability to perform under adversity was questioned by Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur.
Lafleur argued that Pacioretty isn't the type of player that the Montreal Canadiens should want on their team. Pacioretty had 39 goals in the regular season, but just 11 points in 17 playoff games. While he certainly didn't have a great postseason run, it would be an overreaction for the Canadiens to dump him. He comes with a very reasonable $4.5 million cap hit, which makes him a great guy for Montreal to have as they try to build off of their run to the Eastern Conference Final. Jun 4 - 1:02 PM

Max Pacioretty wasn't happy with his performance in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Pacioretty had no shots on goal and a minus-two rating in Montreal's 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers. "Good players find a way to overcome a bad game like that, and I've got to do that [Tuesday]," Pacioretty said. After scoring 39 goals in the regular season, he has just four goals in 15 playoff contests. Montreal has a 3-1 series deficit against New York.
May 27 - 2:29 PM

Max Pacioretty was the lone goal scorer for Montreal in Monday's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Pacioretty's first period tally opened the scoring and gave the Habs an early 1-0 lead, but it was quickly erased after Ryan McDonagh tied the score for the Blueshirts. The unassisted goal was the fourth of the postseason for the Montreal forward.

Max Pacioretty snapped home the game winning goal in Game 7 on Wednesday night to help the Habs eliminate the Bruins and advance to the third round of the playoffs.

David Desharnais fed a wide open Pacioretty near the offensive zone faceoff dot midway through the second period, and the 25 year old made no mistake, firing a bullet past Tuukka Rask. Pacioretty has three goals and seven points in 11 playoff games.
May 14 - 10:14 PM

Max Pacioretty registered a goal and an assist in Montreal's 4-0 win over Boston in Game 6.

The goal was just his second of the playoffs and his first since Game 4 against Tampa Bay in the first round. Perhaps finally scoring in the series can get him going when the series shifts to Boston for Game 7 on Wednesday night.
May 13 - 10:00 AM

Max Pacioretty's face was pancaked into the glass by Boston's Jarome Iginla before the midway mark of the first period, but he didn't miss a shift.

He appeared to be shaken after the play and there was no penalty, but he stayed in the contest and ended up with 16:55 of ice time. Pacioretty is already struggling to produce offense, with a goal and two assists in eight games, so he doesn't need injury concerns too.
May 9 - 7:31 AM

Max Pacioretty was the only player absent from Thursday's optional practice.

"It's an optional practice and I took the option, too," coach Michel Therrien said. The Canadiens' bench boss wouldn't discuss his lineup. Pacioretty had a goal and an assist in four games against Tampa Bay in the opening round. Look for him to play in Game 1 at Boston on Thursday night.
May 1 - 3:53 PM

Max Pacioretty chose a fine time to score his first goal of the playoffs, beating Kristers Gudlevskis in the final minute of Game 4 to put the Habs up 4-3 and complete the sweep of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Bolts overcame a two goal deficit to tie the game midway through the third period, thanks in part to Gudlevskis' strong play in relief of Anders Lindback. But Cedric Paquette's tripping penalty with just over two minutes remaining gave the Habs a chance to redeem themselves, and Pacioretty did just that. He slid a slow shot through the five hole to help Montreal advance to the second round. The Habs will have more than a few days off as they await the completion of the Detroit - Boston series.
Apr 22 - 9:52 PM

Max Pacioretty has no goals and one assist in three games against Tampa Bay in the first round of the playoffs.

However, coach Michel Therrien isn't concerned because Pacioretty has 10 shots and his linemates (Thomas Vanek and David Desharnais) have both recorded goals. Pacioretty has had his fair share of scoring chances, so it may not be long before he finds the back of the net.
Apr 22 - 7:55 AM

Max Pacioretty ended up falling shy of the 40-goal mark.

All the same, with a career-high 39 goals, Pacioretty became the team's best goal scorer since Vincent Damphousse netted 40 in 1993-94. Pacioretty also ranks fourth in the NHL's goal scoring race.

Apr 7 - 4:24 PM

Max Pacioretty is closing in on a Montreal franchise record.

He has scored 11 game-winning goals this season and needs just one more to tie Guy Lafleur and Yvan Cournoyer for the franchise lead of 12. Not too shabby for the Habs' winger who scored his 39th goal of the season against Detroit Saturday night.
Apr 6 - 9:50 AM

Max Pacioretty came through with a night to remember on Friday, potting a hat trick and adding two assists to help the Habs trounce Ottawa 7-4.

In under six minutes, the Senators built a three goal lead to kick off the game, but allowed seven straight Montreal markers to fall behind. Pacioretty's dazzling five point performance gives him 38 goals and 59 points through 69 games this season and 38 points in his past 37 games.
