Pacioretty (illness) will be back in the lineup to face the Maple Leafs on Saturday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pacioretty, Jonathan Drouin and Jordie Benn all missed Friday's practice due to the flu, but each of them will be available to face the visitors in this next contest. The Habs captain has been quite inconsistent this season, as he's connected on only 7.4 percent of his 94 shots and registered a mere 12 points (seven goals, five assists) through 20 games.

Pacioretty missed Friday's practice with the flu.

EDGE Analysis

The Habs have a home game against the Maple Leafs scheduled for Saturday, but Pacioretty, Jonathan Drouin and defenseman Jordie Benn are all currently sick. This is certainly a situation worth monitoring as we head into another busy weekend of hockey.

Pacioretty scored the game-winning goal in overtime in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Sabres. He also picked up an assist and fired nine shots.

EDGE Analysis

Pacioretty had a miserable start to the season, but now has 11 points, including six goals, in his last 10 games. He also has three game-winning goals in his last five outings and continues to pelt opposing goalies with pucks. Pacioretty has found real chemistry with Andrew Shaw and Phillip Danault, and needs to be hopping the boards on your fantasy team every scoring period.

Pacioretty buried the game-winning goal Tuesday against Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

It was the sixth goal of the season for Pacioretty, who extended his point streak to six games. The top-line winger has caught fire for Montreal and has scored five times in his last eight contests. Pacioretty is shooting the puck a ton right now and that's a really good sign for his fantasy owners. Make sure you keep him rolling, as the sniper is playing with confidence on the top line with Andrew Shaw and Phillip Danault.

Pacioretty picked up a goal and two assists, all on the power play, in Saturday's overtime win over the Jets. His goal was the game winner.

EDGE Analysis

Pacioretty is finally warming up -- his point streak stands at four games and six points, including three goals. Remarkably, Saturday's points were his first on the power play this season. The Habs need him to keep this up and so far, so good. Make sure you have him active to take advantage of this streak.

Pacioretty netted his second goal in three games in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Rangers. He also had five shots on net and finished at plus-3 over 22:04 of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

After scoring a goal Opening Night, Pacioretty had been invisible, going seven straight without a point. It was toward the end of that seven-game run of futility that head coach Claude Julien reunited the Canadiens' Captain with center Phillip Danault. Since then, Pacioretty's lit the lamp twice and fired 22 missives toward the net over the last 11 periods of hockey. Prior to that, with Jonathan Drouin at center, Pacioretty had one goal and 26 shots over 22 periods.

Pacioretty scored a goal on two shots and had a team-high tying five hits in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Pacioretty had gone seven games -- all losses -- without a point until he banged home a rebound of Phillip Danault's wraparound attempt. Montreal's struggling Captain has been reunited with Danault, and the pairing led to Pacioretty's first goal since Opening Night.

Pacioretty didn't score a point, but he did post 10 shots on goal in a 6-2 loss against the Ducks on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Canadiens recorded 51 shots on goal as a team, and nobody had more than the left wing. Prior to Friday, Pacioretty was just a little bit off his 2016-17 pace for shots on goal, but he's now way ahead of it after his 10-shot performance. Unfortunately, he only has one goal this season, giving him a 3.0 shooting percentage. But each of the last four seasons, Pacioretty has recorded a shooting percentage of at least 9.9. It's only a matter of time until he starts scoring, especially if continues to rack up the shots.

Pacioretty scored a goal and had a team-high six shots on net in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Montreal's top line got to know each other in the first period when it combined for Montreal's first goal. Pacioretty forced a turnover in the Sabres end, then finished off a slick cross-ice pass from Jonathan Drouin. Brendan Gallagher also assisted on the play. The trio accounted for 14 of the Canadiens' 40 shots in the win.
