Montreal Canadiens rookie forward Brendan Gallagher suffered a concussion in Saturday night's win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
Gallagher -- who has five goals and three assists this season -- left the game in the third period after taking a hit from Flyers defenceman Luke Schenn.
Habs coach Michel Therrien says Gallagher is already feeling a lot better but the team will make sure he's fully recovered before returning to action.

From Vicki Hall at the Calgary Herald:
“I think they’re going to do that parachute jump. So they’ll be looking forward to it. And I guess they’ll be carrying backpacks and stuff like that. But the army is in charge of that stuff, so it will be fun to watch.”
St. Louis Blues prospect Ty Rattie respectfully waffled on the “fun” concept - especially when it came to the notion of the parachute jump.
“I’m on the ground, so it interests me now,” he said. “I think if I get up there, it might not be so interesting. But I think I would do it.”
Vancouver Giants forward Brendan Gallagher expressed similar misgivings, but also opted to stay positive about the ordeal ahead of him.
“I’ve heard we’re repelling down walls, which I’ve never done before,” said the fifthround (147th overall) draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens. “I’m obviously not used to being in a military camp.”
