Brendan Gallagher and some of his teammates wouldn't be surprised to see Derek Stepan (broken jaw) play in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final on Sunday night.

Stepan took a high hit from Brandon Prust in the first period of Game 3, left for concussion testing and ended up playing the rest of the tilt with the injury that required surgery. Stepan was still in the hospital recovering Saturday, so he didn't practice. Even though Rangers coach Alain Vigneault called it "unlikely" that Stepan plays, some of the Habs aren't believing it. "We're 100% expecting him to play," said Gallagher. "He got up yapping and yelling. I'm sure the jaw doesn't hurt too much."

Gallagher's offensive numbers are nothing to go to crazy over, but he does have 67 penalty minutes, so that combination provides good value. Jarred Tinordi had 19 penalty minutes.
