  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Grinds out an assist

    Gallagher had an assist, three shots on net, one hit and a plus-3 rating over 16:02 of ice time in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Philadelphia.

    After Arber Xhekaj's shot was stopped by Carter Hart, Gallagher battled in front of the net to keep the puck alive for Christian Dvorak, who batted it home for Montreal's first goal. To that point, the Flyers had scored a pair of early goals to take a 2-0 lead. After bouncing around the middle six this season, Gallagher appears to have found chemistry on the second line with Dvorak. Gallagher has eight points over 18 contests, with five of those coming in the last six.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Gets two points vs. Columbus

    Gallagher scored a goal and registered an assist in Thursday's 6-4 loss to Columbus.

    Gallagher has three goals and seven points in 17 games this season. He had been held off the scoresheet in six of his previous seven contests going into Thursday's action. At his height in 2017-18 and 2018-19, he recorded 31 and 33 goals respectively, but he dropped to just seven goals in 56 contests last season. Part of that is because he's been shooting far less. He had 3.83 shots per game in 2019-20 and just 2.54 in 2021-22. He's averaging 2.47 shots this season, so he shouldn't be expected to score a lot of goals.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Takes maintenance day

    Gallagher took a maintenance day Friday, but head coach Martin St. Louis believes the forward will be ready to face the Penguins on Saturday, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Gallagher was involved in a skirmish during Wednesday's win over the Canucks, outmanned and outmatched with defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson and goalie Thatcher Demko. More about his availability should be learned closer to the 7:00 pm EST puck drop in Montreal.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Aides Canadiens in victory

    Gallagher registered two assists in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win against Detroit.

    Gallagher had just two goals and three points in 12 games before Tuesday's contest. He averaged 14:20 of ice time in those 12 games and only logged 11:12 in Tuesday's victory. At his height in 2017-18, Gallagher had 33 goals and 52 points in 82 games, but his offensive production has declined significantly since then, and his limited role makes a serious comeback doubtful.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Scores in victory

    Gallagher scored his second goal of the season in Thursday's 3-2 victory over Buffalo.

    Gallagher now has two goals in eight games this season and is pointless in six others. He gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead at 13:31 of the first period when his shot from the right circle hit Eric Comrie's pad and ricocheted off Owen Power's skate and into the net. Gallagher's second came at 16:41 of the third when he deflected Josh Anderson's one-timer past Comrie.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Practices Monday

    Gallagher, who fell hard into the boards during the second period of Saturday's loss to the Stars, was a full participant at Monday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Gallagher left Saturday's game but returned for the third period and appears to have avoided serious injury. He should be ready to go Tuesday night against the Wild.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Returns after leaving game

    Gallagher was injured during the second period of Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Stars but returned for the third period. He finished with three shots on net, one blocked shot and two PIM over 11:36 of ice time.

    Gallagher tripped on a loose stick and slid into the boards before being helped off the ice. The injury looked bad, and there could be some lingering effects in the days to come. The Canadiens are off until Tuesday, when they host the Wild.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Records first point

    Gallagher scored a goal on his lone shot over 15:17 of ice time in Thursday's 6-2 win over Arizona.

    Gallagher corralled a stretch pass from David Savard, leading a 2-on-1 chance, and wristed the puck low to the glove side of Connor Ingram for the Canadiens' third goal of the first period. It was the first strike and point for Gallagher, who is coming off a career-low seven goals in 56 games last season. The 30-year-old forward is no longer a top-line staple, but was recently moved up to the second line and is part of the first-unit power play.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Skating on third line

    Gallagher had three shots on net, one blocked shot and a minus-2 rating over 14:20 of ice time in Friday's 3-0 loss to Detroit.

    Gallagher opened the season on the third line with Christian Dvorak and rookie Juraj Slafkovsky. The days of Gallagher being a first-line staple in Montreal are behind him, but the 30-year-old winger still gets minutes on the second-unit power play.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Draws ire in Ottawa

    Gallagher had one assist, six shots on net, one blocked shot and two PIM in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Senators.

    The Ottawa crowd was ready for Gallagher after the Montreal forward called out Senators forward Tim Stutzle for selling calls when these two teams met earlier in April. Gallagher decided to make sure that if Stutzle hit the ice this time, it would be for a legitimate reason, and he was sent off for roughing. Gallagher also picked up an assist for the second consecutive game.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Registers multi-point effort

    Gallagher had two assists, two hits and two PIM while finishing plus-3 over 14:07 of ice time in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Devils.

    Gallagher had a secondary assist on a Joel Armia goal then was the primary assistant on Kale Clague's tally that closed out the game's scoring. He's posted two points in each of the two contests back from a seven-game absence due to a lower-body injury.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Makes noise in return

    Gallagher scored a goal on two shots, assisted on a power-play tally and was assessed 12 PIM in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Senators.

    Gallagher was back on the ice after missing eight games due to a lower-body injury and skated a lot of fourth-line minutes in 5-on-5 situations. Montreal's spiritual leader kept his role on the power-play unit as well. He wasted little time making an impact, scoring the game's first goal a little more than two minutes into the first period. Gallagher was positioned, where else, in front of the net and pounced on a rebound of a Jake Evans shot. Prior to the goal, he was heavily involved on the forecheck to keep Ottawa bottled up in its own end. The 29-year-old forward later assisted on Cole Caufield's goal. Gallagher was eventually bounced from the game when he picked up a roughing penalty followed by a misconduct with one minute left in the third period.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Ready to rock

    As expected, Gallagher (lower body) will return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Senators.

    Gallagher is expected to return to a prominent role following his eight-game absence, skating on the third line and second power-play unit against Ottawa. The 29-year-old winger has struggled from an offensive standpoint this season, having picked up just five goals and 14 points through 43 contests.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Set to return Tuesday

    Gallagher (lower body) is awaiting final medical clearance but anticipates playing in Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

    Gallagher was stuck in a five-game pointless streak prior to his eight-match absence due to his lower-body issue. If the winger is given the all-clear Tuesday, he figures to slot into a top-six role, though the team could utilize him on the third line to start in order to limit his minutes. On the year, Gallagher has generated just 14 points and will almost certainly miss the 40-point threshold for the second straight year.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Set for one-week absence

    Gallagher (lower body) is expected to miss at least a week due to his lower-body injury, the team announced Friday.

    Based on the team's timeline, Gallagher figures to be on the shelf for the Habs' next four contests. The 29-year-old winger has struggled offensively this year, as he has just five goals in 43 contests and is in danger of missing the 10-goal threshold for the first time in his 10-year NHL career.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Not playing Thursday

    Gallagher (lower body) will not be in Thursday's lineup against Florida, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

    Gallagher will miss his third straight game Thursday. The 29-year-old has just 14 points through 43 games this season. His next chance to suit up will be Saturday against Toronto.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Ruled out Monday

    Gallagher (lower body) will miss Monday's matchup with Boston due to a non-COVID illness.

    Gallagher was sidelined against Ottawa on Saturday due to his lower-body problem and will now miss his second straight contest. The 29-year-old winger has just one goal in his last 24 contests and could be in danger of missing the 10-goal mark for the first time in his 10-year NHL career.
