Max Pacioretty's goal Thursday night against the Arizona Coyotes was notable for several reasons.

The Montreal Canadiens captain busted the club's 138-minute scoring drought less than a minute into the game, notching his 200th career marker in the process.

The Canadiens had been shut out in their two previous games, suffering a 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday and falling 1-0 to the Edmonton Oilers in a shootout on Sunday.

Their last goal before Pacioretty's tap-in came last Saturday in a loss to the Washington Capitals, and it was Pacioretty who scored that one, too.

Thursday's goal gave him 26 on the season, increasing his team lead in the category while padding his club lead in points at 45.
