Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will miss at least one game with what is believed to be a wrist injury.

He underwent tests Tuesday while his teammates practised. Results are to be announced Wednesday.

In eight games this season, the 22-year-old has two goals and four assists.

With the Canadiens at 1-5-2 and winless at home, there have been calls for a coaching change.

"I don't listen to the radio or watch TV or read the newspapers," Canadiens coach Jacques Martin said Tuesday. "After 26, 27 years at this level, I've been through this before.

"To me it's just every day getting better and making sure the team's ready for (the next) game."

Carey Price is expected to start in goal Wednesday against the Philadelphia Flyers. Winger Aaron Palushaj has been recalled from Hamilton of the AHL.
