Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher will be out of the lineup for at least 8 weeks. He was hit by teammate Shea Weber’s slap shot during the 3rd period of Montreal’s OT win against Dallas on Wednesday. Gallagher will have surgery on Thursday to repair his fractured hand. He will be out of Montreal’s lineup for quite some time which may harm the team as alternate captain Gallagher is a crucial part of the team.
