Brendan Gallagher is looking forward to getting his first taste of the Boston-Montreal rivalry on Wednesday night.
"When I learned that I made the team, I was looking forward to playing the Bruins," he said. Gallagher, who stands 5-foot-9 and weighs 178 pounds, is also looking forward to playing against Zdeno Chara and said he plans to finish his checks on the behemoth defenseman. The Canadiens rookie is second on the team in hits, with 19, so far this season and he has provided the club with some valuable secondary scoring. Gallagher has three goals and five points after seven games.
