“It’s still fun to play here, but it’s a bit difficult not to have family and friends around,” said the native of Alberta, having also played with the Vancouver Giants during his stay in the Western Junior Hockey League.
Gallagher, 28, noted to have scored his first goal at Rogers Arena since the start of his career in the National League on Wednesday in the defeat of 6 to 5 in shooting of the Canadian. However, no one in his entourage will be able to remember having been there.
“Playing three games in a row in the same city is wonderful,” admitted Gallagher. There is good and bad. ”
Among the other differences brought about by the COVID-19 situation, there are fewer airplane flights, but also less card games between teammates and fewer evenings shared at restaurants.
About what is happening on the ice, Gallagher remains confident for the Canadiens.
“We have a team with several guys who can take their game up a notch,” said the forward. And it will be different guys on different nights. ”
