CANADIENS RECEIVE UNFORTUNATE NEWS ON STATUS OF BRENDAN GALLAGHER; PRICE BEING EVALUATED

Apr 5, 2021 à 23h15      COOPER GODIN
The Montreal Canadiens stormed back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Edmonton Oilers in overtime 3-2, the goal being scored by newly acquired forward Eric Staal.

While it was great that the Canadiens were able to exorcise their overtime demons, they received some bad news off the ice regarding Brendan Gallagher. According to Canadiens head coach Dominique Ducharme, Gallagher suffered a fractured thumb after blocking Alexander Romanov's shot in the first period, and he is expected to miss multiple weeks.

Gallagher had been contributing quite a bit offensively this season, scoring 14 goals in 34 games, sitting second on the Habs behind only Tyler Toffoli who has 19. The Canadiens could probably reconfigure their lineup for Wednesday's tilt against Toronto by adding in Michael Frolik. But there is another player Canadiens fans are wanting in Gallagher's spot, Cole Caufield.

Caufield will exit his mandatory seven-day quarantine on Tuesday and is expected to join the Canadiens AHL affiliate, the Laval Rocket at practice. While that was the plan, anything could change, and if Marc Bergevin wants to help replace Gallagher's production, Caufield would be a welcome addition.



As if Canadiens fans weren't already dealing with enough, it appears that Carey Price might be dealing with something minor according to Ducharme. The Canadiens head coach said following Monday night's win that Price was being checked out by the team's medical staff, but it's not expected to be anything serious.



The Canadiens will be back in action on Wednesday night when they take on their long-time rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
