Pacioretty scored on the power play for the second consecutive game Wednesday, adding an assist and a plus-2 rating in a 5-1 win over the Rangers. His mid-third-period tally was just the final nail in the coffin with the Habs already sitting on a nice lead, but it's no accident when Pacioretty gets on the scoresheet. He's been particularly on fire over the last nine games, racking up five goals and seven assists. With all the shots he piles up as well as strong plus-minus, there are few fantasy assets as well rounded as the Habs' 27-year-old star.
Pacioretty added his ninth goal of the season in Monday's win over the Canucks. Pacioretty has now recorded a point in each of the last five games, coinciding with an uptick in his shot totals, as he launched a season-high eight on net Monday. The winger keeps ticking along and is well on his way to another 60-point campaign.
Pacioretty snapped out of a funk Thursday, notching a pair of assists in a 4-1 win over the Islanders. He added two PIM and a plus-1 rating. One of the helpers was on an empty-netter, but after five straight games without a point, he'll take 'em how he can get 'em. He certainly deserved the first one, firing a hard shot that Brendan Gallagher was able to deflect past Jaroslav Halak. Next up, a game with the rival Bruins, against whom Pacioretty's got a terrific track record.
Pacioretty scored and had a game-high seven shots in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Blues. Pacioretty continues to find the back of the net, scoring his fifth goal of the season, deflecting Tomas Plekanec's shot from the right point past Jake Allen to open the scoring. He also added a team-high four hits in 16:56 of ice time. Pacioretty is well on his way to another 30-goal season.
Pacioretty had a team-high five shots and assisted on an empty-net goal in Saturday night's 4-2 win over the Bruins. Pacioretty's padded his stats to start the season with two of his three points coming on empty-net situations. That's not to diminish Pacioretty's offensive bona fides -- he's a gifted scorer with a goalie in net or in equal strength situations. But over the course of the year, Pacioretty can build up his numbers on the power play and deployment in late-game situations.
