Canadiens rookie forward Brendan Gallagher out with concussion

BROSSARD, Que. - The Montreal Canadiens are hopeful Brendan Gallagher won't miss much time a day after suffering a concussion in a win against Philadelphia.

The feisty rookie forward left Saturday night's game early in the third period after taking a hit from Flyers defenceman Luke Schenn.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said Gallagher was already "feeling a lot better," though he stressed that the club will follow league protocol and make sure he's fully recovered.

Under the NHL's new rules this year, a player who suffers a concussion no longer has to remain inactive for seven days, but must pass a series of tests.

Gallagher had a goal and an assist against the Flyers before the injury, as the Canadiens went on to a 4-1 win.

Forward Max Pacioretty, who also left Saturday night's game after getting cut by a skate as he drove to the net, was back at practice Sunday.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
