Pacioretty out for Canadiens against Flyers

MONTREAL -- Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will miss Saturday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers with a left arm injury.

Pacioretty hurt his arm midway through the first period of Montreal's season opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs when he was hit along the boards by Colton Orr. Pacioretty missed the rest of the first period and the first few shifts of the second before coming back to finish the game.

Pacioretty participated in Montreal's practice Friday, but said afterward that he couldn't guarantee he would be able to play in Saturday's game. Coach Michel Therrien said Saturday after the team's morning skate that he considered it "too risky" to put Pacioretty in the lineup.

Pacioretty's absence, coupled with that of George Parros (concussion), ensures that rookie Michael Bournival will make his NHL debut while Ryan White will make his season debut after both sat out Tuesday's game.

Bruins looking for third-line scoring

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins searched for most of the season and the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs for third-line production and rarely got it.

This season, they're plan was to rectify that. Although an injury to Carl Soderberg changed the formation of the Bruins' third line prior to the Thursday's season opener, Jordan Caron joined center Chris Kelly and right wing Reilly Smith to form a group that was strong at both ends of the rink in the 3-1 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

With Soderberg still out with an ankle injury, that trio figures to be together again against the Detroit Red Wings Saturday at TD Garden.

"They've got to be able to generate some stuff, some scoring opportunities, which is what we talked about last year about trying to find with our third line," Bruins coach Claude Julien said after his team's morning skate. "So right now, they've given us that. I thought last game they spent some time in the offensive zone. I thought they did a great job forechecking and creating some things."

Rangers assign Miller to Hartford

With captain Ryan Callahan expected to return to the lineup Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings, the New York Rangers have sent forward J.T. Miller to their American Hockey League affiliate in Hartford.

The Rangers' first-round pick (No. 15) in the 2011 draft, Miller registered one shot and two penalty minutes in New York's season-opening 4-1 road loss to the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday night. The 20-year-old Ohio native had an eventful 2012-13 season. He made his NHL debut with the Rangers, posting two goals and two assists in 26 games, while also collecting nine points in seven games to lead Team USA to gold at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship.

In his first home game with the Rangers on Feb. 7, Miller wowed the Madison Square Garden crowd with two goals. But he has failed to score since that game.

Murray, Jenner to make NHL debut for Columbus

COLUMBUS -– The wait is almost over for Blue Jackets fans who want to see the NHL debuts of forward Boone Jenner and defenseman Ryan Murray.

Each will be in the lineup Friday night when Columbus opens the season against the Calgary Flames. Expectations are high for the two rookies as well as the team, which last April lost out on the final Western Conference playoff spot to the Minnesota Wild on a tiebreaker.

A second-round pick (No. 37) in the 2011 NHL Draft, the 20-year-old Jenner was a fan favorite at his first two training camps thanks to his robust play. But he was sent back to Oshawa of the Ontario Hockey League each time.

"I worked really hard in this past offseason," he said. "I thought I could make the jump."

Not only did he make the team but he is on the top line with Brandon Dubinsky and Marian Gaborik.

Murray, the second pick in 2012, had to endure season-ending surgery after a shoulder injury in November while playing in the Western Hockey League.

Tonight, he will be paired with veteran James Wisniewski.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
