Max Pacioretty drew back into the lineup for the Montreal Canadiens and Mark Stone of the Ottawa Senators was good to go in Game 2 despite dealing with a wrist injury.

Pacioretty had been out since April 5 nursing a suspected concussion. He began Friday’s contest skating on a line with David Desharnais and Devante Smith-Pelly.

Meanwhile, Stone suffered a microfracture to his right wrist after being slashed by P.K. Subban in Game 1 Wednesday. Stone also suffered some ligament damage, according to Senators general manager Bryan Murray.

This means Chris Neil, who had some harsh words for Subban, will be a healthy scratch. The veteran enforcer was slated to take Stone’s spot in the Sens’ lineup if the rookie couldn’t go.

Stone started the game on his regular line beside Kyle Turris and Clarke MacArthur.
