Max Pacioretty named the NHL's second star of the week

Greg Fiume

When we began #PaciorettyWeek, I don't think we realized that it would be this successful.

Pacioretty's five goals in three games has brought him from slumping forward that most fans were bashing to the NHL's second star of the week. His extraordinary play led the Canadiens to three straight wins over very tough teams, and reinvigorated David Desharnais.

Here's what the NHL had to say:

SECOND STAR - MAX PACIORETTY, LW, MONTREAL CANADIENS

Pacioretty led all players with five goals, including two-game winners, in three games to help the Canadiens (13-9-2, 28 points) pick up a trio of victories. He opened the week by recording a natural hat trick, his second career three-goal game and first since Feb. 9, 2012, in a 6-2 triumph over the Minnesota Wild Nov. 19. After being held off the scoresheet in a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals Nov. 22, Pacioretty twice found the back of the net, including the game-winning goal, in a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins Nov. 23. The New Canaan, Conn., native has totaled 7-2-9 in 15 games this season, tying for second on the Canadiens in goals and game-winners (2).
