Gallagher no longer has a goal in Thursday's 7-3 win over the Canucks.
Gallagher was initially credited with the Canadiens' final tally, but it was changed to Ben Chiarot's goal after the game. That leaves Gallagher with three points in five contests this season.
Gallagher netted a power-play goal in Thursday's 7-3 win over the Canucks.
With Tyler Myers ejected for a headshot on Joel Armia, Gallagher scored the seventh and final tally for the Canadiens. He's scored in back-to-back games, and the 28-year-old Gallagher now has four points and 21 shots through five contests. While his non-scoring numbers don't jump out (four hits, plus-1 rating), the veteran winger is capable of producing well-rounded performances.
Gallagher scored a goal on a team-high eight shots in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Canucks.
Gallagher tied the game at 3-3 with his goal late in the second period. He was a constant nuisance for Braden Holtby, but only found twine once. Gallagher is up to three points, 19 shots and a plus-2 rating in four games. A top-line winger with a hefty shot volume, Gallagher makes for an appealing option in many fantasy formats.
Gallagher had two assists, three shots and one hit over 13:48 of ice time in Saturday's 5-1 win over Edmonton.
Gallagher had helpers on both goals scored by Tomas Tatar, executing good work along the boards to spring both scoring opportunities. After being kept off the scoresheet in an opening-night loss to the Maple Leafs, Gallagher registered his first points of the 2020-21 season.
Gallagher (jaw) skated with Phillip Danault and Tomas Tatar during Monday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
As expected, Gallagher recovered from the broken jaw suffered in a playoff game last August and was on ice for Montreal's first practice. He rejoined the same linemates that made up the Canadiens' top line last season.
Gallagher (jaw) agreed to terms on a six-year, $39 million contract extension with the Canadiens on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old has spent his entire eight-year career in Montreal, and he is set to stay with the club much longer with the contract having an AAV of $6.5 million. Gallagher has been a stud for the Canadiens the past three seasons, potting at least 20 goals, and he recorded a 43-point season across 59 games last year. Gallagher is still recovering from the broken jaw he suffered in the playoffs, but he's expected to resume hockey activities soon.
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.
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 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.
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.
Gallagher may have sustained a broken jaw late in Wednesday's Game 5 versus the Flyers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Gallagher was hit across the mouth by Matt Niskanen's stick during a late scrum in the contest. It's unclear how much time, if any, Gallagher would miss with the injury. The 28-year-old's status for Friday's Game 6 is uncertain.
Gallagher netted a power-play goal on three shots and added three hits in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flyers in Game 5.
Gallagher's first goal of the postseason gave the Canadiens a 3-2 lead in the second period. It wasn't for a lack of trying -- through the first eight playoff games, the winger had come up empty on 34 shots. He now has four points, a minus-1 rating and 18 hits in nine outings.
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.
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.
Per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, Gallagher (illness) is on the ice for morning skate, which suggests he'll return to action Saturday against the Panthers.
Gallagher missed Thursday's game against Tampa Bay due to an illness, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The 27-year-old winger will return to a top-six role and a spot on Montreal's first power-play unit against Florida.
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.
Gallagher is dealing with an illness ahead of Thursday's game against Tampa Bay, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The 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.
Gallagher scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Islanders.
He got the ball rolling on the big win by scoring the first goal of the night midway through the first period, then set up Jeff Petry for the second a little over two minutes later. Gallagher has five points (two goals, three helpers) in the last three games, and on the season he's picked up 22 goals and 43 points through 57 contests.
Gallagher had a goal and an assist along with four shots and a hit in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Carolina.
Gallagher's two-point effort, his first since Dec. 28, nearly went for naught. His second-period goal gave Montreal a three-goal lead before the Hurricanes erased it and sent the game to extra time. Gallagher and his mates on the top line have struggled to score goals lately, and this was just his second in the last eight contests. He stands at 21 goals and needs to score nine in 15 games to register a third consecutive 30-goal season.
Gallagher notched an assist, three shots, one hit and had four minutes in penalties in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.
Gallagher doesn't typically pick up a lot of PIM, but the feisty forward has spent nine minutes in the box over the last three games. That's nearly a third of his 29 sin-bin minutes for the season.
Gallagher scored a goal and registered a plus-3 rating in the 4-3 win over Washington on Thursday.
Gallagher was held out of Tuesday's contest with a lower-body issue but made his presence felt in his return. He tied things up at 2-2 late in the second period with a gritty net-front goal. The 5-foot-9 winger is up to 20 goals and 38 points in 52 games this season.
