Habs fans got some tough news last evening as the team disclosed that LW Max Pacioretty would miss a month of action due to an emergency appendectomy performed after Pacioretty suffered Appendicitis. The loss is a tough one as Pacioretty emerged as the team’s most dangerous scoring threat over the last season. Further compounding matters is the tough decision the Canadiens will need to make in short order as to whether or not they will keep Alex Galchenyuk with the NHL team after his allowed 5 game preview is over. Will Pacioretty’s absence force the Habs to keep their 18 year old phenom in the lineup? Either way, the team will miss Pacioretty badly over the next month.
Game starts at 6pm tonight. Go Habs Go!
