Gallagher skipped practice Friday, opting to take a therapy day, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports. Gallagher spends a lot of time in the offensive zone, playing in the dirty areas in front of the net where he takes a lot of bumps and knocks. It's not surprising he needs a therapy day every now and then. He should be ready to go Saturday night when the Canadiens host the Golden Knights.
Gallagher recorded two assists Tuesday in a 5-3 loss to the Rangers. One of No. 11's helpers came on Max Domi's power-play goal in the second period and moved Gallagher to 12 points in 15 games on the year. Despite receiving so much time on Montreal's power play, Tuesday's assist was just his second power-play point of 2018-19.
Gallagher recorded two goals, seven shots and three hits during Thursday's 6-4 comeback win over the Capitals. Gallagher was his usual pesky self, but to the delight of fantasy owners continued to dominate on the stat sheet. Now up to nine goals and 10 points in 12 games, the 26-year-old winger is starting to look more and more like Montreal's version of Brad Marchand -- and not just in terms of on-ice disposition. Gallagher is a legitimate fantasy stud in all formats these days so play him while he's hot.
Gallagher scored his team's only goal Tuesday in a 4-1 loss to the Stars. Leading the Canadiens with seven goals in 2018-19, Gallagher has been a consistent catalyst in what has been a surprisingly fast start for Montreal. While the result Tuesday was not favorable for the home team, No. 11 continues rewarding fantasy owners and remains Montreal's most valuable forward.
Gallagher scored his fifth goal of the season Tuesday in a 3-2 win over the Flames. In addition to his goal, Gallagher led the Canadiens with seven shots on goal and continues to be an offensive catalyst for Montreal. With five points in his last five games -- including two game-winning goals -- the pesky forward has been a consistent fantasy contributor early on this season.
