Gallagher recorded an assist on the Canadiens' lone goal in their series-ending Game 6 loss to the Lightning on Tuesday.

Though Gallagher finished the series with a respectable three points and 20 shot attempts, the Habs' overall lack of playmakers in their top-six forwards proved to be the difference in the series. Though he profiles best as a second- or third-line player, Gallagher was relied upon to often to carry the load with Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec on the team's top trio. The 23-year-old might have the ability to develop into a 60-point player down the road, but the Habs clearly need to add supplemental talent to their forward ranks this offseason in order to have a more serious shot at contending for the Stanley Cup in 2015-16.

Gallagher scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's series-clinching Game 6 win over the Senators.

Gallagher went on a four-game goal streak toward the end of March, but entered Sunday's contest with just one goal in his the 12 games since then. The winger logged a pair of points in the series win, but figures to be a fairly reliable source of offense going forward as the Habs await their second round opponent.

Gallagher scored a goal and had five shots on net in Tuesday night's 3-2 overtime loss to Nasvhille.

It was the third straight game with a goal for Gallagher and 22nd of the season. His 21 shots over the last five games puts him at 223 for the season, second to only Max Pacioretty on the team. Which is quite natural as Gallagher has developed into the team's second-best offensive weapon behind MaxPac.

Gallagher had an assist, his fourth straight game with a point, in Thursday night's 5-2 win over Columbus.

Gallagher had been in a scoring slump until the past week or so. He's tallied six points (four goals, two assists) during his four-game run. He's a spark in the Candadiens' offense and will get his points, so fantasy players need to ride out those fallow periods. At 36 points through 61 games, he's sure to pass his career-high mark of 41 points set last season.

Gallagher scored a pair of goals -- the game-winner at even strength and an insurance tally on a power play -- Tuesday in a 5-2 win over the Blues.

Gallagher's starting to build himself up a little streak, as he's got points in three straight, with four goals and an assist to show for that span. He'll easily pass by last season's total of 41 points, but his fantasy value remains limited to deeper formats.
