Gallagher received a timeline of two weeks on Friday.

The 30-year-old has been limited to 25 games this season by various injuries. He's tallied four goals and nine points while playing 14:12 per game, the lowest average time on ice of his career since his rookie campaign.

The Canadiens are last in the Atlantic Division with a 16-22-3 record. Montreal faces the Nashville Predators on Thursday.
