Canadiens’ Brendan Gallagher, left, and Max Pacioretty relax during preseason last year, a year in which Pacioretty led the team in scoring with 39 goals and 60 points.
The game remains a wonderful, enduring memory for Max Pacioretty, a match that counted not for a single point in the standings, one that did nothing to fatten his statistics. This was a mostly meaningless 2-1 preseason Canadiens victory over the Detroit Red Wings at the Bell Centre on Sept. 30, 2008. But for a variety of reasons, it meant the world to Pacioretty, then 19 and in his first Habs training camp.
