Pacioretty could return Sunday
By Victoria Matiash
So much for the minimum two weeks' recovery. Eight calendar days after enduring an emergency appendectomy, forward Max Pacioretty is reportedly ready to once again suit up for the Montreal Canadiens.
Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette:
"Look for Max Pacioretty to be in Habs lineup (Sunday, vs Ottawa Senators), 7 1/2 days after his appendectomy. Not confirmed but a pretty safe bet ..."
If all goes to plan, coach Michel Therrien may opt to sit a seventh defenseman instead of a fellow forward. In which case, Tomas Kaberle could be in real danger of spending Sunday afternoon in the press box.
