Max Pacioretty struggled to produce in the playoffs and he became a scapegoat as a result following Montreal's six-game series loss to the Rangers.
He recorded just one assist in six games in Montreal's first-round postseason exit after he scored 35 goals during the regular season. "That's fine ... I don't have any problems with that. But you'll never be able to completely block it out and that’s just part of the business," Pacioretty said. "But the motivating part of being in Montreal is you never really get the full satisfaction. You're only as good as your last game. But I'd much rather have that than be in a place where guys don't care at all about how you play. In this day and age, with everyone having an opinion and being able to be voiced by social media and whatnot, you're going to know that you're going to get both sides of it every day, but that's OK." It can come with the territory of playing in a hockey-mad market, but it seems like Pacioretty still has work to do when it comes to not letting negativity impact his play. Apr 27 - 9:04 AM

Max Pacioretty still hasn't found the back of the net in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

He's managed to fire 24 shots on goal in five games, but he's been unable to beat Henrik Lundqvist. The Canadiens find themselves down 3-2 in the series, and the fact that Pacioretty still hasn't scored has become a bit of a problem. "In order to get through this, we’re going to need more from a lot of guys," said head coach Claude Julien. "It’s time for certain players to elevate their games and have that confidence and desire to be better. There’s no doubt when you lose games and you’re behind 3-2, you can’t be satisfied as a team and you know there are certain players who can give a little bit more." Pacioretty has one assist in five games.

Max Pacioretty collected five shots on goal in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the New York Rangers.
