Max Pacioretty popped a trio of points during Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over the Kings.

It was the Captain's first two-goal game of the season, as he lifted his season total to seven goals and 18 points in 25 games thus far. He also has points in three of his last five games.
Dec 4 - 6:55 PM

Max Pacioretty spent a portion of Friday's game against San Jose on a line with Alex Radulov and Alex Galchenyuk.

With the Canadiens struggle to score, again, coach Michel Therrien decided to try Pacioretty with the only two players that seem to be clicking right now. The Canadiens captain is having a hard time offensively this year. Pacioretty has scored 39, 37 and 30 goals over the last three seasons, but he has just five so far in 2016-17. He should be able to turn it around at some point this season.

Max Pacioretty scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Pacioretty's had a hard time finding the back of the net this season, but tonight's goal was obviously huge. Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher, who are also slumping offensively, picked up the assists on Pacioretty's goal. He has five goals and nine assists in 21 games this season.

Max Pacioretty is projected to play with Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher on Thursday night.

The trio was put together during Tuesday's game versus Ottawa and they combined for 10 shots on goal. The combination failed to score, but coach Michel Therrien feels they are due to break out. Gallagher has a 14-game goalless drought and Plekanec has one goal in 20 outings, while Pacioretty has scored twice in his past 12 contests.

Max Pacioretty doesn't want to think of his new line as a demotion.

"I'm not going to be negative about this, so don't go fishing," Pacioretty said. "I'm excited to help this team win games and wherever I'm plugged in, I'll do what I can." He is slated to play with Torrey Mitchell and Andrew Shaw on Tuesday night. Mitchell will be the fifth center to play with Pacioretty since the star winger started the season on the top line with Alex Galchenyuk.

Max Pacioretty scored a power play goal in Tuesday's 4-3 OT loss to the Florida Panthers.

It didn't take Pacioretty long to get on the board, as he gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead at the 2:12 mark of the opening period. The Canadiens captain has struggled to find the back of the net at times this season, but he's scored in two of his last three games. He has four goals and nine assists in 17 games this season. He's worth owning in most fantasy formats.

Max Pacioretty has just two goals this season.

Pacioretty's scored at least 30 goals in each of his last four seasons, but he's struggled to find the back of the net this season. The Montreal Gazette believes there's a chance that the Canadiens captain is playing hurt. On a positive note, Pacioretty had an encouraging performance against the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. It's a great time to buy-low on Pacioretty.

Despite their 9-1-1 start to the season, the Canadiens have had some issues of late.

Friday night's 10-0 loss to Columbus will definitely stand out, but Montreal's lackluster play can be traced back to last week. Montreal needed Carey Price to save them in a pair of wins against Toronto (on Saturday) and Vancouver (on Wednesday). But on Friday, their lack of effort caught up to them. "That’s definitely the outcome we deserved tonight," said captain Max Pacioretty after the 10-0 loss. "The good news is that we turn around and play (Saturday) night at home. We had problems in our last game and it’s frustrating. We’ve done a lot of good things lately but it hasn’t been perfect. The reason why we’ve won so many games is we’ve stuck together and played for one another. Tonight, we left (Al Montoya) out to dry and that’s frustrating because we pride ourselves about being such a close group." We'll see how they respond against the Flyers on Saturday.

Max Pacioretty netted the game-winning goal in Thursday's 3-1 victory over Tampa Bay.

Max Pacioretty picked up a goal and an assist in a 4-0 win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

He also posted six shots on goal in the contest, while picking up four penalty minutes and a plus-2 rating. The goal was the first of the season for Pacioretty, who now has three points in three games.
Oct 19 - 10:37 AM

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.
Oct 7 - 9:09 AM

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."
