  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Strikes in loss

    Gallagher scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Devils.

    Gallagher put Montreal on top, 1-0, early in the second period when he one-timed a feed past Nico Daws. It was the ninth tally of the season for Gallagher, who scored for the first time since returning from a five-game suspension. The once-productive veteran has just five points over the last 22 games and 17 for the season. It should be noted that Gallagher is off the fourth line; he had 12:37 TOI on the third unit with Josh Anderson and Jake Evans.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: First goal in almost two months

    Gallagher scored a goal Saturday in a 4-3 shootout win over the Rangers.

    He scored in the first period, beating Jonathan Quick glove side with a wrist shot after Vincent Trocheck couldn't clear the puck up the boards. Gallagher's goal was his first since Nov. 11. He had four helpers in his previous 24 games. His game has been in decline for several seasons, and he no longer can deliver fantasy value in any category. Keep Gallagher on the wire.

For Gallagher, it was his second straight game with an assist following a fallow stretch of two points over 15 contests. The 31-year-old forward has 12 points (four with the man advantage) through 31 outings.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Whistled for costly penalty

    Gallagher had one shot on goal, one hit and four penalty minutes in Thursday's 6-5 loss to Vegas.

    Gallagher was a non-factor for much of the game, but his double-minor with just under three minutes left was the biggest moment of the contest. The Golden Knights scored power-play goals on each end of the double minor to take a 6-4 lead. This was the second consecutive game in which Gallagher took a penalty late with the game on the line. He also had a third-period hooking call that gave the the Bruins a 5-on-3 advantage last Saturday, but Montreal survived that and won in overtime. Gallagher, who has 10 PIM over the last five games, is third on the team with 18 PIM.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Two-pointer in loss

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Goal and assist in loss

    Gallagher picked up a goal and an assist along with four shots in the Canadiens' 3-2 loss to the Coyotes on Thursday.

    Gallagher would tie the game at 2-2, scoring a power-play goal off a pass in the slot. He would also pick up an assist on Sean Monahan's goal in the first period. This game ends a four-game pointless streak for Gallagher as he looks to get back on track offensively. He should continue to play in the Canadiens' middle-six forward core and second power-play unit.

    Gallagher scored a goal with an assist in Monday's 3-1 road win against the Sabres.

    Gallagher posted his second goal of the season at 3:31 of the third period, putting Montreal ahead for good, so he is credited with the game-winning goal.

The Canadiens are back at it on home ice Tuesday night against the Devils.

    Gallagher scored a goal on three shots and had two PIM over 9:27 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win against Washington.

    Gallagher potted his first goal of the season during the second period in a style befitting him, that is to say it wasn't pretty. Sean Monahan slipped a backhand pass to the top of the crease, where a battle for the puck ensued. Gallagher fought off a check and scored while dropping to his knee, then had his momentum carry him into the net behind Darcy Kuemper. It was the first point of the season for Gallagher, who's getting third-line minutes (11:41 TOI) and second-unit power-play time (2:06 PPTOI).

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Off to slow start

    Gallagher had one shot on net over 14:32 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Minnesota.

    Gallagher is off to a slow start, managing just three shots and zero points through three games. The shine on Gallagher's game has worn off as injuries have taken their toll on the the 31-year-old forward, who has 29 goals over 128 games over the last three seasons. He's skating on the third line, dubbed the veteran line, along with the 29-year-old Sean Monahan and 29-year-old Josh Anderson. That unit opened the season with the 31-year-old Tanner Pearson, but Pearson was shuttled to the second line Tuesday following Kirby Dach's season-ending knee injury.

It was the fourth goal in seven games for Gallagher, who has five points in nine contests since returning from injury. He was part of a reconstituted second line following two consecutive shutout losses.
