News: Pacioretty set up two Canadiens goals in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs.
Impact: Pacioretty is just five points away from matching last season's total of 60, as increased diversity in his production (30 goals, 25 assists) have aided his climb to a top-20 spot on the league scoring list. His fantasy value has also taken a substantial leap from 2013-14 thanks to a lofty plus-36 rating, which ranks first in the NHL.
News: Emelin (shoulder) has joined the team on their road trip and could return in two weeks if the rehab continues to progress smoothly, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Impact: Emelin has been out of the lineup since mid-February, but appears to be on track for a return in the next couple weeks. The blueliner carries a plus-10 rating and 13 points with him through 55 games this season, with a return slated near the end of the regular season.
News: Pateryn led the Canadiens with six hits in Saturday night's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs. He also blocked two shots in 11:58 of ice time.
Impact: With Sergei Gonchar (upper body) returning to the lineup, one of Montreal's young defensemen had to go, and it wasn't Pateryn. He survived while Jarred Tinrodi was sent back to the minors. He skated on the third defensive pairing along with Nathan Beaulieu.
