What does this mean for the Canadiens? Eyes on the Prize comments on the loss of Galchenyuk and the impact it will have on Montreal: Galchenyuk was injured in the first period of a 3-2 road loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday. Galchenyuk sustained a lower-body injury Wednesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks as he fell awkwardly against the boards. He was playing left wing on Montreal's second line with Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher at the time of his injury. The Canadiens will face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the playoffs, though home ice advantage in the series remains to be determined. With the Habs lacking a bit in terms of scoring depth this injury could be a serious blow particularly on a power play that is now 0 for it's last 19 with the man advantage.
