Gallagher took a hard shot early which was stopped by Henrik Lundqvist and resulted in the first broken stick of the game. An unlikely pair turned to fisticuffs, when Max Pacioretty and Jimmy Vesey both took matching majors, with coincidental...

Ice-cold Max Pacioretty feeling the heat in Montreal

MONTREAL -- The "C" that Max Pacioretty wears so proudly on his Canadiens sweater took on different symbolism in the past couple of days. It stood for more than the traditional meaning, "captain."
