MONTREAL - There's no denying it. Brendan Gallagher loves playing against the Bruins, especially in Boston.

On Saturday night, the 26-year-old forward registered his 20th career point in 25 career regular-season games against the Canadiens' Atlantic Division rivals with a highlight-reel individual effort during the first period.

It just so happened to be his team-leading sixth goal of the season and his third game-winning goal so far this year, too.

"We were pretty motivated," stated Gallagher, following the 3-0 victory. "This was a lot of guys' first taste of the Montreal-Boston rivalry. It's always fun coming into this building."

Gallagher has put up more points (7g - 13a) against the Bruins than any other team since debuting in the NHL ranks back in 2012-13.

And, 13 of those points (5g - 8a) have come while the Canadiens were on the road in Massachusetts for contests at both TD Garden and the 2016 Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.

You'll recall that the Winter Classic marked Gallagher's return to the Habs' lineup after undergoing surgery to repair two fractured fingers.

Now, sit back and enjoy some of Gallagher's top plays versus Boston over the years.
