    Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Set to resume training

    Brendan Gallagher (jaw) expects to start training activities soon, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.Gallagher reportedly still needs some dental work before being back to 100 percent, but this news would indicate the winger will be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign. The 27-year-old Edmonton native managed just 22 goals this season, missing out on the 30-goal mark for the first time since 2016-17, though he was limited to just 59 appearances.

    Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Diagnosed with broken jaw

    Brendan Gallagher suffered a broken jaw during Wednesday's Game 5 win over the Flyers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.Gallagher suffered the injury when he was cross-checked across the face by Philadelphia's Matt Niskanen during a scrum late in Game 5. Niskanen will almost certainly receive a suspension for his actions, but that won't make up for the loss of Gallagher, who's been one of the Montreal Canadiens' best forwards during the team's first-round matchup with the Flyers, having picked up a goal and two assists while firing 20 shots on net through the first five games of the series. According to Lavoie, Gallagher will need to undergo surgery, so although a recovery timetable has yet to be established, at this point we know the feisty winger won't be available for Games 6 or 7 (if necessary) against Philly, at a minimum.

    Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Status uncertain

    Brendan Gallagher (jaw) hasn't left the bubble for further testing according to coach Kirk Muller, who told reporters, "Depending on what he has to get tested on, he would have to leave the bubble," per Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca. According to Pierre LeBrun of TSN, however, Gallagher will have to undergo a CT scan, which would cause him to miss the final two games due to quarantine requirements.Through the first five games of the series, Gallagher registered one goal, two assists and 20 shots while averaging 15:48 of ice time. The Edmonton native posted two of his three points on the power play and should continue to feature on the No. 1 unit if he avoids missing any time due to his jaw injury.

    Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Finally snaps goal drought

    Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Supplies power-play helper

    Brendan Gallagher notched a power-play assist and seven shots on goal in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Flyers in Game 1.Gallagher has been limited to just two assists in five postseason games despite pumping 24 shots on net in that span. The 28-year-old winger shot 9.7 percent (22 goals on 226 shots) in the regular season, so he'll likely light the lamp eventually, although Flyers goalie Carter Hart could make that difficult. Gallagher will look to bury one himself in Friday's Game 2.

    Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Has third straight 20-goal season

    Brendan Gallagher has 22 goals, 21 assists and a team-high 226 shots while averaging 16:55 of ice time per game over 59 contests in 2019-20.Depending on the state of play in the NHL following the suspension of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic, it looks like Gallagher's run of 30-goal seasons will end at two. However, three straight 20-goal seasons is a notable achievement for the forward, who was a fifth-round draft pick (147th overall) in 2010. Despite losing ice time to a head injury, the feisty forward leads Montreal in shots by a wide margin and is tied with Tomas Tatar for the team lead in goals. He's the goal-scoring star of the team, but the injury and a lackluster power play (17.7 percent, 22nd) have contributed to Gallagher's reduced scoring. The team could use scoring depth, but Gallagher is part of a top productive line. He'll return in 2020-21 along with Tatar and Phillip Danault, all of whom will be in the final year of their contracts, and Gallagher will be in a position to reach 30 markers again.

    Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Won't play Thursday

    Brendan Gallagher (illness) will not dress for Thursday's game against the Lightning, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.Gallagher's absence will leave a major hole up front for the Habs, especially with the red-hot winger coming off of five points in his last three games. Given the reason for his absence, there's a decent chance he will be back in the lineup for Saturday's game in Florida.

    Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Under the weather

    Brendan Gallagher is dealing with an illness ahead of Thursday's game against Tampa Bay, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.The Montreal Canadiens have yet to officially rule Gallagher out, so his status against the Lightning will likely boil down to a game-time decision, but he should be considered questionable at best at this point. If he's unable to go, the Canadiens will either have to roll with 11 forwards and seven defensemen or promote a skater from their AHL affiliate ahead of puck drop.
