Galchenyuk recorded an assist, two shots on goal and four hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canadiens in Game 5. Galchenyuk's shot attempt was tipped in by Jake Muzzin for the game-tying goal at 11:54 of the third period. While he was able to contribute to the Maple Leafs' offense, Galchenyuk also helped the Canadiens in overtime. A misplaced pass led to Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield rushing the other way on a 2-on-0, with Suzuki scoring to keep the Canadiens in the series. Galchenyuk has produced four points, four shots, six hits and a plus-2 rating through four playoff appearances.
Galchenyuk registered a goal and two assists with two shots in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Montreal in Game 4. Galchenyuk certainly picked a good time to have his most productive performance in a Toronto uniform. He threaded two perfect passes to set up second-period goals by William Nylander and Jason Spezza, helping Toronto build a 2-0 lead, then iced the game with an empty-netter late in the finale frame. Galchenyuk only saw 12:24 of ice time -- all of it at even strength -- despite a second-line assignment, but still managed his first three-point game since Jan. 2019 with Arizona.
Galchenyuk skated on the second line with William Nylander and Nick Foligno during Friday's practice, reports TSN.ca. Chucky revived his career in Toronto after being discarded by Montreal, but couldn't crack the postseason top-six because the team was too deep. The John Tavares injury (concussion) open a spot on the second line and Galchenyuk's intense forechecking will bring a skilled heaviness to that trio for Game 2 on Saturday.
