Cornwall ON – Montreal fans are waiting with baited breath as Rookie fave Max Pacioretty has been out cold after a brutal hit by Zdeno Chara. Both players were moving with Max losing his balance while smashing into the edge of the glass after the players bench.
I’ve never seen a hockey injury like this in over 40 years of watching hockey as of print time Pacioretty is still not showing signs of consciousness. He’s been placed onto a stretcher and the Bell Centre is quiet for the first time in the game as the Habs have shut down the Bruins 4-0. The fans cheered as the stretcher left the ice, but Max is still not showing any signs of consciousness.
Max was taken by Ambulance to Hospital. Still no word of his condition as of 10:04 PM
We’ll update as news becomes available. With less than 3 minutes in the game Lucic tried to dance with PK Subban. The Bruins definitely are not happy and taking it out on the smaller Habs.
Max has been reported to have regained consciousness as per CJAD at 10:26 PM
Watching the video, Chara seems to put his left arm up to push Pacioretty into the glass….
If you’re going to score two goals out of the blue and you play for the Montreal Canadiens, Boston is the team to do it against. And that’s exactly what Lars Eller did Tuesday night, both assisted by Travis Moen too! Other Montreal goals have been by Brian Gionta and James Wisniewski.
