Pacioretty was helped off the ice by the team's trainer. He seemed to be favoring his left arm. However, the team later confirmed that it's a lower-body injury. Based on the way he crashed into the post, it may also be a hip injury.
In 49 games played this season, the 25-year-old leads the Habs with 26 goals. With his 11 assists, he is second on the team in points. He's currently averaging over 18 minutes per game.

Should Pacioretty be seriously injured, the good news for the Canadiens is that the Olympic break is upon us. As such, he has two weeks to rest up without missing any games.
Update: After the game, Pacioretty confirmed that he'll be flying to Sochi.
