Max is back
The unbreakable Max Pacioretty is back in the Habs lineup.
Just one week after being released from hospital following emergency appendectomy, the Habs' young power forward returns to the lineup 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule.
Pacioretty was cleared for practise Friday and took part in the warmup skate at the Bell Centre Sunday afternoon, only to be confirmed for the lineup at the expense of Ryan White who remains in the Therrien doghouse for foolish penalties against the Senators.
Surgical procedures for the operation like Pacioretty had can now be done through the belly button, so there was no damage to the strong abdominal muscle of the 24-year old.
