                      Last night in Edmonton, the 28th placed Habs took on the 29th place Edmonton Oilers. Horcoff opened the scoring for the Oilers. Then P.K Subban scored on the powerplay to tie the game. Then early in the second, Pacioretty scored to give the Habs a lead. Just 4 minutes later Omark scored to tie the game. 3 minutes into the second, Bourques shot was deflected and it went right to Kaberle and he scored thats a powerplay goal. 2 minutes later, Eller centred the puck from the behind the net and it went off the back of Khabibulins pad and into the net to make it 4-2. Hall would later cut the lead in half before Max Pacioretty tallied and empty net goal as the Habs win 5-3."You play to win," Subban said. "As far as the players in the dressing room go, you want to win every game and you want to compete. It's your job to go out there and try to win every game, and that's what we did."

             On the day on March 8th 2011, Chara sent Pacioretty into the turn buckle at the Bell Centre. He was out for the rest of the season with a neck injury. "That's a heck of a thing to come back from," Cunneyworth said. "The dedication and the work he has had to do is something. He came back bigger and stronger. That line as a group has done a lot of good work all year." Pacioretty's had a comeback year with 30 goals and 24 assists."I'm happy that I could help him get to 30 goals," Subban said. "I don't know if that means I get dinner or something like that. For a guy that has already gone through so much in his career with the neck injury, it's inspirational to see what he has done for our hockey club this year."
