Max Pacioretty was on a top line as he went through his first practice since being recalled from Hamilton.
Pacioretty was at left wing on a line with Tom Pyatt and Brian Gionta. That’s the spot usually occupied by Andrei Kostitstyn. As for Pyatt, he was probably keeping the spot warm for Scott Gomez, who worked on his own with strength coach Pierre Allard.
Kostitsyn was teamed with Jeff Halpern and Max Lapierre.
The other lines were Tomas Plekanec-Mike Cammalleri-Travis Moen and Lars Eller-Benoit Pouliot-Mathieu Darche.
Josh Gorges did not practice. His partner, Hal Gill, skated with Dustin Boyd. The other D pairings were Roman Hamrlik-P.K. Subban and Alexandre Picard-Yannick Weber.
No sign of defenceman Jaroslav Spacek who left Saturday night’s game in Toronto with an upper-body injury.
