Brendan Gallagher scores twice, Canadiens beat Sabres 7-4

MONTREAL (AP) The Montreal Canadiens refused to be satisfied - or comfortable - not with so much at stake.

Brendan Gallagher had two goals and an assist, and the Canadiens beat the Buffalo Sabres 7-4 on Saturday night for their third straight win.

Max Domi and Tomas Tatar each had a goal and two assists as the Canadiens (40-28-7) moved three points ahead of idle Columbus in the race for the second wild card in the Eastern Conference. Artturi Lehkonen, Andrew Shaw and Paul Byron also scored.
