#Habs Brendan Gallagher (concussion) skated today but is yet to be cleared for contact by the team doctors; he will not play tonight vs. NYI

Once Gallagher gets cleared for contact it won't be long before he is back in the Canadiens lineup. The Habs are first in the East right now and will only get better with the return on Gallagher who has 8 points and is a +7 in 13 games this season.
