Ya hate to see it….Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher is our for the rest of the series against the Philadelphia Flyers. Gallagher got caught with a cross check from Flyers defenseman Matt Niskanen during last nights game 5. You can see the hit below:
Heres my thoughts on the hit, was it a cross check to the face? Yes, it was but it’s not Niskys fault that Gallagher is three foot nothing. On top of being super short he clearly ducks his head down so it would’ve been tough for Niskanen to avoid his face. Niskanen had a hearing today for the hit and hopefully he avoids a suspension which he should. Give him a fine and move on.
Game 6 is Friday at 7pm as the Flyers look to close out the series.
