|Habs' Brendan Gallagher battles with Flyers' defenseman|
Luke Schenn in last night's 4-1 win.
Peter Budaj earned his first win of the season playing in his first home game after losing his first two starts on the road. The win could prove to have been costly as Brendan Gallagher and Max Pacioretty each left the game with upper body injuries.
Gallagher, who earned the game's first star with a goal and an assist, was hit hard from behind by Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn. Pacioretty, who is still in search of his first goal, was hauled down by Philly defender Kimmo Timonen and crashed into the post.
More information on the extent of the injuries is expected after the team practices at noon today.
