No shortage of storylines ahead of tonight’s Habs-Preds tilt in Nashville.

P.K. Subban is hurt, and unable to face his former team. Shea Weber is healthy, and is bracing for an emotional return to the Music City. And now, Weber’s involved in another development after his slapshot felled Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty during the morning skate.

Pacioretty is now questionable for tonight’s tilt, coach Michel Therrien said (per ESPN).

The Habs can ill-afford to lose Pacioretty, who leads the team in goals (15) and points (30). They’re already dealing with a slew of injuries to key players: Alex Galchenyuk, Andrew Shaw, David Desharnais and Andrei Markov, most notably.
