Pacioretty left the game at 4:04 of the third period after falling headfirst into the boards on a check by Anaheim defenseman Clayton Stoner.

Coach Michel Therrien told the Canadiens website Pacioretty was sent to the hospital Thursday but was at the Bell Sports Complex during practice Friday.

"The good thing is that he is back with us," Therrien said. "He is day-to-day. We will see for tomorrow. But the good news is he was (in the building) this morning."

Pacioretty leads Montreal with 13 goals and 25 points. He has not missed a game this season.

"I think their team wasn't happy about it," Stoner said after the game. "I didn't mean to hurt him but the game's fast and sometimes guys go into the boards wrong, so I hope he's all right and I didn't mean any intentions to hurt him."
