i don't care about undersize players as long as they work hard and drive to the net. they may not have amazing hands but most goals are scored around the net. Gallagher does all this and gets in goalies face. Guys like Pierre Dagenais and Dustin Penner are like 6'4" 220lbs but are primeter players and how quickly they are out of the NHL.

Gally is the Tazmanian Devil and we're lucky to have him on our team. Hardest working player in the NHL.

5 points in 6 games. Great young player. The "A" looks great on his jersey

The puck clearly crossed the line before any contact was made...
Good Goal.

He's just warming up.
If he starts using some of the talent he does have (see Plecky goal) he can be very special.
I like when he mixes a hockey play or two into the grind.

Exactly, and the goalie didn't even attempt to stop it, Gally didn't stop him from doing anything...

That's because of the angle of the camera. The puck was passed Mrazek by the time he touched him.

I just wished that situation didn't happen as it doesn't represent well the sport. But I can't argue that the referee did their job by calling it a good goal. Also I still don't understand what was Quincey thinking?

Gallagher's effort is exemplary amongst NHLers in general, but don't sell his Teammates or Linemates short they too play full out. A Stanley Cup Championship certainly looks possible for this team, barring injuries of course, always playing that hard comes with risk of injury, IMHO.

I think they didn't understand that Toronto was only reviewing whether the puck was kicked or if it had entered the net in an illegal way like in past years. They weren't reviewing whether or not there was goalie interference. They can only do that in the case of a coach challenge, which detroit didn't use...

EDIT: to be more accurate on what I said above, Toronto doesn't review goalie interference, refs on the ice do, but they can only do that if there's a challenge by looking at the images from the ipad.

Wings fans should be pissed at their own coach for not challenging.

But it's true that the ref on the ice should have called it unintentional interference. Which I doubt MT would have challenged. But still Detroit had the chance to challenge the goalie interference, they only have themselves to blame here.

If the puck went in before Gally made contact with the goalie, it should be a good goal. But every angle I saw seemed to show Gally making contact with the goalie before the puck went in.

I agree, we got lucky with that call. it was close, but I couldn't believe they allowed it.

There was a very definitive overhead angle that showed the puck past Mrazek before contact.
This was the only reason it was allowed. You have to understand that there was no way the War Room was going to allow this otherwise. This was why Detroit could not challenge the ruling there was nothing left to challenge.

As an aside, Gallagher's leading the team in takeaways so far with 8, 3 ahead of Flash, and he's tied for second in the league. He's really shown some solid defensive awareness this season.

This is a great example of why they don't use still shots for review!
Brendan's skate is still 4-5 inches away at this point and the puck has already beaten Mrazek.

I still remember seeing this little guy for the first time.

I was 100% sure he would never make it to the NHL.

Aannnd look at him now! I would never underestimate little guys now.

Same thing with Gaudreau.

Team Canada. First time I saw him play, gut feeling told me he's a special player with a unique personality and will be an NHL'er. I don't know if there's another player who smiles as much as he smiles. Glad nobody drafted him earlier.

His skating has improved so much it's crazy. Kid has breakaway speed now. Not to the level of Patches, but the kid can now put on an impressive burst to beat the D. I've been enjoying watching him cut into the middle and try and split the D. He's really opening the ice for Pleks & Patches with his net drive and speed.

He's becoming very good at stealing pucks on the forecheck the odd time he isn't 1st on the puck. He's also starting to play with his head up a little more when he has the puck. He's made some unexpectedly nice passes.

I really like his game right now. He's become such a complete player.

Yeah I think Gallagher has improved a lot since last year. It's through hard work and experience. Because he's not the most naturally talented one. Which makes the improvements that much more impressive.

For example.. you look at a guy like Galchenyuk who is bigger, and has so much more natural talent... both came in the league at the same time, even if Gallagher was older... I really expected Galchenyuk to leap frog Gallagher really fast, but it's actually Gallagher who has found a way to improve faster than Galchenyuk. To me this is really really impressive considering the untapped potential of both players. Gallagher is just really exploiting 110% of his potential.

It's mental toughness. Gallagher has needed it since every single league he came up in said he would never make it. Small players have to work harder to show they belong in the NHL it's nice to see start scoring he started slowly but has picked it up.
