Cornwall ON – Max Pacioretty doesn’t really look like a power forward, but he’s performing as one. Fast; good hands, and this season; playing on the top line, is showing a ton of confidence that’s leading to points on the board as it did tonight against Atlanta.
Montreal was out shot; badly, 41-23, but beat Atlanta 3-1. Max led the Habs with a goal, assist, and was +2 for the night. Scott Gomez had a good game too as the Habs just did it better tonight.
Ottawa is doing it better losing to Boston 1-0. Calgary did it best though shutting out St. Louis 6-0 as the team has reversed its early season malaise.
In other NHL games Buffalo beat the Rangers 3-2; Alex Ovechkin scored the winner in OT leading Washington to a 2-1 over the Islanders. Jason Arnott had an assist and 3 shots for his first game with the Caps; and Carolina kept play off pace nipping Florida 2-1.
Four other games were in progress as of print time.
