Last night while at the game, I saw Pacioretty go down in a heap. I wasn't sure what had happened, and after the game with friends, the speculation was that maybe he jammed his wrist or hurt his ribs. Turns out that a skate somehow got past Pacioretty's chest protector and he suffered a deep cut to his ribs. What is with this guy's luck? First he needs an emergency appendectomy, then Mikhail Grabovski attempts to give him rabies, now a skate cut to the ribs. Pacioretty's extremely fast health regeneration courtesy of being a mutant should help him get back pronto, but considering the risk for infection and that skating could open stitches in the rib area, it wouldn't be surprising to see Pacioretty miss a game or two, maybe as much as a week.
