Pacrioretty had a team-high six shots on net and scored a power-play goal in Friday night's 4-2 win over the Devils. Over the past three games, he has 15 shots and two goals.

The goal was his 15th of the season and second on the man advantage, leaving him shy of he pace he set last season when he scored a career-high 39 goals and 10 on the power play. That drop off in goal-scoring is related to the team's lack off power-play success. Montreal ranks 24th at 15 percent (16 goals in 106 opportunities).

Pacioretty is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Senators.

Pacioretty (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's tilt with the Senators, John Lu of TSN Montreal reports.

The Habs plan to have Pacioretty skate during pregame warmups and assess his condition afterward before deciding whether or not he'll be fit to play. It looks like a formal announcement on his status could come down to the wire, so the risk-averse may want to steer away from using him in daily formats. For what it's worth, he was a full participant in morning skate, which would normally indicate that a player is healthy and ready to suit up.
