Brendan Gallagher suffered a broken jaw in Game 5 and will require surgery.
Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher has a broken jaw that will require surgery, forcing him out of the series after he was cross-checked by Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Matt Niskanen in Game 5 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series on Wednesday night.
Late in the third period, Gallagher was cross-checked in the jaw by Niskanen and was bleeding from his mouth.
