Max Pacioretty in Habs lineup just eight days after appendectomy

Remember last week when Max Pacioretty was set to miss 3-4 weeks after having an emergency appendectomy? Apparently the Habs forgot who he was and that he heals as fast as Wolverine.

Pacioretty took the warm-up skate with the team before their game against Ottawa this afternoon to see how he felt and he did indeed get the start. He’s half-Max, half-amazing.

You’ll recall that Pacioretty also had a miraculous recovery from the severe concussion he received after Zdeno Chara put him head-first into a stanchion at Bell Centre. That speedy return to action got then Bruins forward Mark Recchi to wonder if he was embellishing the injury. Little did Recchi know he was dealing with a comic book super hero in Pacioretty.
