Pacioretty had six shots on net and scored on two of them in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Oilers. Pacioretty's first of the night was the game-winner early in the third period -- his sixth game-winning goal of the season -- and then he added an empty-netter to close out the scoring. At 33 goals, he's six shy of his career high with 14 games to play.
Pacioretty set up two goals in a 4-1 win over the Rangers on Saturday. The five-time 30-goal guy isn't half bad dishing the puck, too. Pacioretty has 10 points in his last 10 games and six of those were helpers. He's pacing toward his first 70-point season.
Pacioretty scored two goals on eight shots during Monday's win against New Jersey. Make it four consecutive seasons with 30 or more goals for Pacioretty. He's also hit the benchmark in each of the past five full seasons and is well on his way to his fifth 60-point campaign. What Pacioretty lacks in an offensive ceiling, he makes up for with his year-to-year reliability, and he should continued to be viewed as a go-to scorer in all fantasy settings.
Pacioretty (illness) participated in warm ups before Saturday's game against the Blues and is expected to play, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports. Pacioretty missed the morning skate, but barring an unexpected setback, he should be good to go for the game. Pacioretty is having a great season with 27 goals and 48 points in 56 games, so fantasy owners have to be happy about the way this shook out.
Pacioretty missed Saturday's morning skate due to an illness. Pacioretty hasn't been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Blues, but his status for that contest appears to be iffy at best at this juncture. Brian Flynn slotted into Pacioretty's spot on the Canadiens' first line during Saturday's morning skate, and could skate in that role against the Blues if the Habs' captain is unable to go.
