Chara apologizes, plus Gallagher on his dust-up with referee after OT loss

David St-Jean   ·   18 février 2020
Last Wednesday, the Habs/Bruins rivalry grew even more fiery when Bruins captain Zdeno Chara delivered a stiff cross-check to the throat of Habs forward Brendan Gallagher in a heated exchange. Chara was fined $5000 for the incident.

Asked about it earlier in the day on Tuesday, Gallagher said that Chara called him to apologize for the hit. The Canadiens' forward truly appreciated that:



That aside, Gallagher also found his way onto the radar once again on Saturday with referee Dean Morton after Dallas' comeback over the Habs. Gallagher was clearly frustrated about the referee's multiple missed calls during the game and he aired his grievances to Morton after the Stars' game-winner in overtime. The follow-up was also very heated, as the two men could be seen yelling at each other at centre-ice.

Gallagher commented on the matter on Tuesday, but it wasn't with the same frustration that was on display on Saturday. In this case, some time to reflect on the exchange was probably a good thing, as a pretty zen Gallagher answered questions from reporters this morning:





Both incidents seem to have been dealt with and now the Habs can try to put a tumultuous week in the rearview and look ahead to what remains of the season. There's still a chance, albeit a slim one, that the Habs can put together a run and shock the hockey world by sneaking into the playoffs. Time will tell.
