All even after one: Max Pacioretty gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead when he scored at 3:22 of the first period on the rebound of a shot from the blueline by rookie defenceman Victor Mete, who was making his first appearance since helping Canada win the gold medal at the world junior championships. Sometimes we all get hit somewhere in the upper body. You never want to see anyone get hit in the head or the neck area and get carried off the ice.

The incident took place with 1:37 remaining in the second period. The team said he was taken to a hospital with a head injury for further examination.? The 24-year-old center was moving and speaking to medical staff before he departed to an ovation from the Bell Centre crowd. The last news we had he was in hospital getting treatment and he was doing fine.

Danault is stretchered off the ice. "He is awake and moving".

Claude Julien coached against Boston for the first time since he was sacked by the Bruins last February and hired by the Canadiens a week later.

Chara understandably was left shaken by the incident and was the first player to have words with Danault as he was taken off the ice. "He was talking to me and responding so that made me feel better that he's OK and he's not in a condition where he's not responding".

The 24-year-old Victoriaville, Que., native, a first round draft pick by Chicago in 2011, is in his third full National Hockey League season. It was the 11th goal of the season for Pacioretty, who has scored in each of the last three games.

Julien, who won a Stanley Cup as the Bruins head coach in 2013, was sacked after 56 games during the 2016-17 season while guiding the Bruins to a 26-23-6 record.
