Max Pacioretty to miss 4-6 weeks with knee injury


Montreal Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty will miss four to six weeks with a knee injury suffered Friday, the team announced Monday.

Pacioretty suffered the injury in the third period of Friday night’s win over the New York Islanders. He was the subject of trade rumors ahead of the Feb. 26 trade deadline but denied reports last week that he requested a deal to a new team.

Mark Stone passed from the left faceoff circle across to Hoffman below the edge of the right circle. His shot went off the sprawling Lehtonen’s upper left arm and into the net.

Duchene has 33 points (13 goals, 20 assists) in 35 career games vs. Dallas. … In the last six games, Seguin has seven goals and four assists. … Ottawa RW Marian Gaborik returned after missing two games with an undisclosed injury. … The Senators had killed 13 of 14 penalties in the previous six games. Dallas had been 17 for 18 over five-plus games.

The Wizards (28-22) are now 2-0 since Wall was sidelined (they beat the Hawks Saturday). They need every win they can get with Wall out. They’re currently in fifth place in the East, but they’re only up a couple of games on the eighth-place 76ers. So this win, against a tough visiting team, was big. Coach Scott Brooks liked what he saw.

“We fought, we battled, we clawed. We didn’t complain; we just played,” Brooks said.

Before the game, Brooks had said he didn’t think the Wizards would acquire a guard before the Feb. 8 trade deadline.

“This is a minor setback. (Wall) will be back,” Brooks said. “We’re not gonna change things up just because of this.”

Tuesday night, the crew the Wizards had on hand was enough to get the job done.

The Celtics dropped to 34-11 but remain in first place in the Eastern Conference.

The Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic needed only one half to log a double-double against the Mavericks, as his 20 points and 11 rebounds helped Denver take a 61-48 lead into the locker room. He finished with 29 and 18, and the big man can pass, too. Here’s one of his seven assists in the Nugs’ 105-102 win.packers_157

James Reimer is earning his teammates’ confidence with starter Roberto Luongo on the shelf.


Reimer stopped 37 shots for his second shutout in three games and the Florida Panthers beat the Montreal Canadiens 2-0 on Saturday night.

It’s been a busy month for Reimer since Luongo was injured Dec. 4, and he capped December with another stellar show. He also beat Ottawa 1-0 a week ago with a 38-save effort. The Panthers won their fifth straight game with Reimer in goal.

Philadelphia has won two straight and three of four. It is the Sixers’ first winning streak since they took three in a row (Nov. 20-25).

The Sixers received more good news Tuesday, when rookie guard Markelle Fultz, the top overall pick in the 2017 draft, played four-on-four in practice. It is the most he has done since he was shut down four games into the season because of a shoulder injury. Though no definitive timetable has been announced for his return, he is in the “final stage of his return-to-play program,” according to a news release.
