"When your stanley cup dreams are crushed and you come home to find out youve been robbed but its okay. Because pitbull has been there and done that," he says over a snippet from the bridge of Pitbull and Ne-Yo's track "Time of Our Lives" dedicated to "everyone going through tough times."
Gallagher, looking dismayed, then takes a big bite of a sandwich.
He offered no further details. MTL Blog has reached out for more information.
News of the robbery comes after a hard day for the Canadiens winger. At a press conference following the team's loss in the Stanley Cup Final, Gallagher held back tears while describing his teammates' efforts.
"I've played on a lot of really good teams, with a lot of really good guys, it's hard right now," he said.
"We've got so many players that worked their entire careers to get to this point and it's a tough pill to swallow."
Captain Shea Weber said he's "very proud, obviously. This group has a lot of character and we put up with a lot of adversity this year, we proved a lot of people wrong, in a tough year to boot."
Carey Price, the Habs' beloved goalie, looked down in the dumps during the Zoom call and said what happened during Game 5 was "incredibly disappointing."
His plan now is to "take some time off and reboot."
Phillip Danault and Brendan Gallagher also got emotional in their Zoom call with the media.
Gallagher, while trying to hold back tears, said "I've played on a lot of really good teams, with a lot of really good guys, it's hard right now. We've got so many players that worked their entire careers to get to this point and it's a tough pill to swallow."
Danault made sure to say that he's extremely proud of everyone on his team and all that they've accomplished this season.
The man who was constantly being referred to as a "warrior" in the past few days, Brendan Gallagher, is proving himself to be exactly that. The player will be back in the lineup for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals even though many questioned whether he has a concussion after leaving the ice with a bloody face in the last game.
On June 30, just hours before the next game, the 29-year-old player gave an update on his health.
"I have a pretty specific way of reacting when I have a concussion, usually involves me yelling a lot. I think the trainers understood. I was with it, pretty calm," Gallagher said.
"They've seen me when I have those things, there were no worries there. They obviously checked on me the day after — not all that concerned about it."
The player then continued to say he's ready to move on. On Tuesday, interim coach Luke Richardson confirmed that the forward's injury would not cause him to miss a game.
"Gally is Gally, he has marks all over his face every game. Right now, he doesn't look very good. His face looks like a road map. He's a warrior and we're counting on him. He'll be back to do what he does best tomorrow [Wednesday night]."
