Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty is on the ice for Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Montreal's leading scorer missed the final two games of the regular season and the playoff opener after hitting the back of his head against the boards when checked by Florida defenseman Dmitry Kulikov on April 5.

Pacioretty had 37 goals and 67 points this season.

He is taking the spot of Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau, who suffered an upper- body injury in Game 1.
