Gallagher, who had scored his team-leading eighth goal in the first period, was medically cleared to return, but during the 10 minutes he was absent, Arizona popped a couple of goals past Charlie Lindgren for its first regulation win of the season.

Gallagher opened the scoring in Tuesday's win over the Golden Knights.
After managing just 10 goals in 64 games last season, Gallagher has already found the back of the net seven times this year.

The gritty winger has now collected three goals and six points through his past five outings.
