Brendan Gallagher spears Kevan Miller below the belt

Surely there will be great wailing and grinding of teeth over this, right? Right?

Brendan Gallagher tries really hard to be the Montreal Canadiens’ version of Brad Marchand. He’s not as good a player as Marchand, and isn’t really as good at agitating either, but he can take cheap shots that would make Marchand proud.

Case in point: this bit of stickwork on Kevan Miller as time expired in the first period.

A couple other angles:

A scrum ensued, with Gallagher talking a ton of trash once the officials were involved.

Apparently, no penalties were called in either direction.

The Bruins lead Montreal 2-0 at the start of the second.

EDIT (8:24 PM): Apparently penalties were called in secret, as they just weren’t posted on the NHL site. Looks like Miller was called for roughing, Gallagher for slashing.
