Brendan Gallagher scores first career hat trick, Canadiens beat Flyers

Gallagher had his first career three-goal game and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-1 Thursday night. "That's a one in a hundred shot right there". "He's a great goalie". Backup Brian Elliott stopped 29-of-31 shots in relief.

The Flyers, who were already shorthanded on defence after Radko Gudas was suspended two games for high-sticking Nikita Kucherov, had a scare when Robert Hagg was struck in the face by a Jeff Petry shot late in the first period, but he returned to the game after collecting some stitches.

Gallagher completed his hat trick 2:56 into the second period with a backhanded shot into the top corner. It was his first three-goal effort in 467 National Hockey League games.

"I was surprised it was Gally's first (hat trick)", said Tatar, who reached the 20-goal plateau for the fourth time in his career. "He worked really hard tonight". Phillip Danault set a career high with 41 points. Losing 5-1, they were dominated in almost every single aspect on the ice, in a critical matchup for any shot at a playoff berth no less, and couldn't rise to the occasion for the second time in the month of February. "But he works so hard for that puck". He now has three points (all assists) in the two games of the season series, and averages over a point per-game in his career against the Habs with 14 points (2g-12a) in 10 career games.

She said: "No one ever taught me that lesson". "There was no tire at all, there was no wheel", she added. New episodes of 9 Months with Courteney Cox drop Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9 p.m.

"A lot of players have progressed this year and it's always easier to progress when you're in a positive situation, which we've been as compared to last year", added Julien. "Our transition game has been pretty good". Raffl's deflection goal of a Shayne Gostisbehere shot made it 5-1 and, immediately thereafter, a mix-up around the Habs net almost resulted in a Jakub Voracek goal but the Canadiens dodged the bullet and cruised the rest of the way with Price erasing further anything that developed.

Gallagher completed a hat trick in the second period as the Habs went up 5-0 before Michael Raffl got the Flyers on the board midway through the third.

The Canadiens held an optional morning skate in advance of Thursday's home game against the Philadelphia Flyers (7:30 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio) and numerous players took the option to rest or workout in the gym. The Flyers had not lost on the road since January 12.
