Pacioretty (upper-body) out until at least next week
From the Habs’ official Twitter account:
Head coach Michel Therrien confirms Max Pacioretty met with team doctors. He will not play the team's next two games. Upper-body injury.— Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) April 8, 2015
Pacioretty was hurt Sunday in Florida when he fell backwards into the boards after being hit by the Panthers’ Dmitry Kulikov:
Pacioretty leads the Habs with 37 goals. If he’s not ready for the playoffs, it’ll be a huge blow to Montreal’s chances. The Canadiens’ offense ranks 22nd out of 30 teams.
Pacioretty’s condition will be re-evaluated next week -- the same week the playoffs start.
