Canadiens only have one Gallagher, and that’s a problem | HI/O Show
On this week’s show, our panelists — Montreal Gazette columnist Stu Cowan, CBC Daybreak Montreal’s Jessica Rusnak and former Canadiens defenceman and NHL assistant coach Rick Green — along with host Julian McKenzie talk about the Canadiens’ goal-scoring struggles since Brendan Gallagher was sidelined by a fractured thumb. They also weigh in on these topics: Canadiens seem unwilling to visit dirty areas to score. Flames set could go a long way to deciding a playoff berth. Frustrations mount for Habs captain Shea Weber.
The cat was not injured, fire department spokesman Larry Langford told, noting that the cat later tried to find its owner.

Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins, who orbited the moon alone while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made their historic first steps on the lunar surface, died Wednesday. He was 90.
