Canadiens beat Golden Knights to spoil Pacioretty's return

MONTREAL (AP) While all eyes were on former Montreal captain Max Pacioretty, it was the player the Canadiens traded for who led his new team to a come-from-behind victory.

Tomas Tatar scored the game-winner in the third period as the Canadiens defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 5-4 on Saturday night in Pacioretty's return to Montreal.

Pacioretty was dealt to the Golden Knights in the offseason in return for Tatar, prospect Nick Suzuki and a second-round draft pick.
