Pacioretty returns to Canadiens’ lineup after concussion
MONTREAL (AP) Montreal scoring leader Max Pacioretty returned to the Canadiens’ lineup Friday night, and Ottawa Senators forward Mark Stone also took the ice in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoff series.
Pacioretty sustained a concussion in the regular season. He led the Canadiens with 37 goals and 67 points and topped the NHL at plus-38.
Stone is playing with a microfracture and ligament damage in his right wrist after being slashed by Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban in the second period of the Canadiens’ 4-3 victory Wednesday night.
Canadiens forward Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau missed Game 2 because of an upper-body injury.
