Montreal's power-play goal during a 5-4 win over Ottawa Thursday night was its first in six games.
The Canadiens are 4-for-40 with the extra man in their past dozen games, but the Thursday goal was very important in the mind of the man who scored it, Max Pacioretty. "We had to change things up a bit," Pacioretty said. "Teams were focused on what we were doing." The Canadiens moved bodies around more than they usually did on the power play in which Pacioretty scored. One power play is a small sample, but the goal offers some hope that the Canadiens can regain their spot among the NHL's best power plays. They head into Toronto tonight ranked 10th in the NHL on the power play.
