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." Apr 10 - 12:19 PM

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.

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.

Max Pacioretty scored in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Detroit.

He gave Montreal some hope when he scored at the 7:50 mark of the third period to put the Canadiens behind by a goal, but they couldn't get the equalizer.

Mar 25 - 8:39 AM

Max Pacioretty finished Saturday’s game against the Senators with a minus-four rating in the 5-0 loss.

Mar 9 - 10:15 AM

Max Pacioretty netted two goals in the Canadiens’ 4-1 win against the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

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). He has 23 goals and 44 points. Devante Smith-Pelly and Alex Galchenyuk picked up the other goals.
Feb 27 - 10:11 PM

Feb 24 - 11:00 AM

Max Pacioretty ended his personal seven game goal drought during Sunday's 2-1 shootout win over Carolina.

Feb 7 - 6:06 PM

Max Pacioretty is expected to be fine to play when the Canadiens play at Philadelphia next Tuesday.

He left Tuesday's game after a deflected shot struck him in the face midway through the second period. Coach Michel Therrien said the injury wasn't serious after the contest.

Max Pacioretty left Tuesday's match with Columbus due to an upper-body injury.

Pacioretty caught a PK Subban slapper to the face, so there's likely a bit of damage there. Though we don't quite know the extent just yet, but we will keep you posted. Montreal's captain produced a hit, a minor, and three shots on net in 8:32 of work before departing.
Jan 26 - 9:31 PM

Max Pacioretty defended his coach after the Canadiens lost their fifth straight game on Tuesday night.

"He's been absolutely phenomenal during this (slump) and that's what makes it so hard," Pacioretty said about Michel Therrien. "I can't believe how well he's handled this and how positive he's been with us. And night after night we haven't been able to step up for him and that's frustrating because we all believe in this room. We're all on board. We all know that this is the way the game is supposed to be played." Montreal's top line didn't have a point in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Boston despite 12 shots on goal, including four from Pacioretty. Unfortunately, the trio finished the game with a combined minus-9 rating. The Canadiens have gone 4-16-1 in their last 21 games and Therrien appears to be close to paying the price with his job.
