NHL Game Summary - Minnesota at Montreal



(Tuesday, November 19th)

Final Score: Montreal 6, Minnesota 2

Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - Max Pacioretty scored the first three goals of the game to notch his second career hat trick as Montreal Canadiens cruised to a 6-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.

Michael Bournival, Daniel Briere and Alex Galchenyuk also lit the lamp for the Canadiens, winners in two of their last three games.

Nino Niederreiter and Dany Heatley had one goal apiece for the Wild, who had won four straight entering the contest.

"We did not play very well, but they did and it shows in the result. Hopefully our players are ticked off so they can play better in Ottawa tomorrow," said Wild head coach Mike Yeo.

Pacioretty opened up the scoring just under three minutes into the second. David Desharnais centered a pass to a streaking Pacioretty, who was able pound the puck home.

Seven minutes later, Desharnais found Pacioretty for his second goal of the game before he capped his hat trick at the 13:36 mark for a commanding 3-0 lead.

"We managed the puck really well tonight. We were attacking at the right times. In the last two weeks it has been a team effort to wake Desharnais from his lethargic start," said Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien. "There was a new chemistry there with Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher on the line with Desharnais tonight."

Bournvail's sixth goal of the season put the Habs ahead by four with 3:44 left in the middle session.

Briere lit the lamp 4:42 into the third before Niederreiter got the Wild on the board less than a minute later.

Galchenyik made it 6-1 with his goal at the 7:59 mark and Heatley scored with one second left to account for the final margin.
