Gallagher finished with a goal and a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-2 preseason win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Gallagher opened the scoring at even strength just 3:06 into the contest before adding an assist with the extra man in the middle frame. He scored a career-high 31 goals last season after mustering a career-low 10 in 2016-17, and this effort suggests Gallagher's primed to come closer to last year's success than the previous campaign's failure.

Gallagher had an assist, five shots on net and a hit in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

A miserable season in Montreal ends, but Gallagher was one of a few bright spots. His assist Saturday was his 23rd, matching a career high. He also set new standards in goals (31), points (54) and power-play points (17) while playing his first full season since 2014-15. When the dust of the impending roster shake up settles, Gallagher will be a top-line forward for Montreal in 2018-19.

Gallagher scored a goal on his only shot in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Gallagher upped his career high to 31 goals when he and Jonathan adroitly executed a 2-on-0 break in the second period. He'll look to finish out a full 82-game schedule Saturday night in Toronto, the first time he's done that since 2014-15. A healthy Gallagher has career highs in goals (31) and points (53). The final challenge will be to get two assists against the Maple Leafs and set a personal best in that category.

Gallagher has declined in invitation from Hockey Canada to participate in the World Championship scheduled May 4-20 in Denmark, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gallagher cited his banged up body as the reason why he'll pass on the experience. "This year I've been healthy, which is a good thing, obviously," Gallagher said. "But part of playing every game is you're going to get bumps and bruises and a few things that you just can't take care of when you're playing every day."

Gallagher scored two second-period goals and recorded five shots during Monday's 4-2 win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

This was the third consecutive game Gallagher found the back of the net, and he now has the first 30-goal season of his career. His 15 power-play points are also a personal best, as the 25-year-old winger has taken a huge step forward in 2017-18 after consecutive injury-plagued campaigns. Looking ahead, fantasy owners will want to be careful not to overvalue Gallagher heading into next season, as his style of play makes him a candidate to frequent injured reserve. This could also prove to be his best offensive showing. Still, the high-volume shooter's ability to help in multiple categories shouldn't be ignored.

Gallagher had three shots and scored an empty-net goal in Friday's 3-0 win over the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Gallagher has emerged as Montreal's most dangerous offensive threat this season, leading the team in goals (27) and points (46). The Canadiens have had a 30-goal scorer in each season since the lockout -- Max Pacioretty did it four times and Alex Galchenyuk once -- and Gallagher is the team's lone hope this season. Aside from giving younger players elevated ice time over the final seven games to develop, Gallagher's quest for 30 is another objective. He's scored six goals over his last 12 games, a pace that would carry him over the 30-goal threshold.

Gallagher scored his 25th goal of the season while adding two shots, one hit and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

That's now a new career high in goals for the 25-year-old. Even as the team around him falls apart, Gallagher has kept his poise down the stretch, lighting the lamp four times in the last six games and scoring seven goals and 15 points in 19 contests since the beginning of February.

Gallagher scored for a third straight game and had three shots over 15:19 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to New Jersey.

EDGE Analysis

The goal was Gallagher's 24th and matched his career high set in 2014. He has 16 games remaining to improve upon that and maybe reach 30. With Max Pacioretty (knee) sidelined, Gallagher takes on a higher profile in terms of team leadership and as the team's most dangerous scorer.

Gallagher scored the Canadiens only goal in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

The goal was Gallagher's 23rd. He has a modest three-game point streak (two goals, two assists) on the fly right now and he has eight points in his last nine games. He is now just one goal from equalling his career mark of 24, which was set in 2014-15. Gallagher is a solid fantasy play right now.
