Canadiens’ Pacioretty tries his hand at smack talk
Usually P.K. Subban is the most vocal Canadien off the ice, but forward Max Pacioretty attempted to get in on the action over the weekend when he made a joke about hitting crossbars and posts following the Canadiens' Game 5 win.
"They may have to get new nets because we’re wearing out the posts," Pacioretty told reporters after Game 5.
The Canadiens have displayed a remarkable ability to hit iron so far in the second-round series against the Lightning. Three Canadiens hit posts in the second period of Game 5 alone. The first Montreal goal in Game 5, Devante Smith-Pelly's tally in the first period, hit iron as well.
