Brendan Gallagher scored what proved to be the game-winner for the Canadiens in their 3-1 win over the Senators in Game 2 of their first-round series Friday night.

The little guy continues to be quite the menace, as he's now scored in his first two career playoff games and has goals in four straight tilts, dating back to the regular season. Even more impressive is that Gallagher keeps doing his damage without a ton of ice time, as he had 12:09 on Friday, still managing eight shots, four of which went on goal. Michael Ryder and Ryan White recorded the other goals for the Habs, who brought the series even after an emotional Game 1 that saw Lars Eller leave on a stretcher, bloodied and concussed. Brandon Prust, Rene Bourque, Alex Galchenyuk and P.K. Subban had the helpers.

Tomas Tatar has signed a four-year, $21.2 million contract extension with the Detroit Red Wings.

The two sides really waited until the last minute. Tatar and the Red Wings already went through their arbitration hearing, but because the arbitrator hadn't ruled yet, there was still a small window left for them to reach a compromise on their own. Tatar will come with a $5.3 million cap hit as a result of this deal. Based on previous reports, Detroit had offered Tatar a five-year, $25 million deal, but he rejected it as he was seeking $6 million to $7 million annually for six or seven years. It seems that the compromise was ultimately to agree to something with a shorter term. He had 25 goals and 46 points in 82 contests last season.

Ryan Dzingel has signed a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Ottawa Senators.

Dzingel and Ottawa have managed to avoid an arbitration hearing. They had already reached the point where the two sides had to file salary requests with Dzingel asking for $1.95 million for the 2017-18 campaign and Ottawa countering at $1 million. He had 14 goals and 32 points in 81 contests last season.

The Detroit Red Wings and Tomas Tatar weren't able to avoid an arbitration hearing.

Tatar and the Red Wings have consequently had to make their case to an arbitrator, who will name Tatar's salary within the next 48 hours. Tatar's requested salary was $5.3 million and Detroit countered with $4.1 million, but the arbitrator has the power to determine a middle ground as well. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next summer and did suggest that if it came to the point where a hearing was necessary then the 2017-18 campaign would likely be his last season with Detroit. The two sides will be able to begin negotiations on a long-term deal in January though. If he's still not signed to an extension by the trade deadline then it wouldn't be surprising to see Detroit trade him.

Colton Parayko and the St. Louis Blues have agreed to a five-year, $27.5 million contract extension.

Parayko would have had an arbitration hearing on Thursday, so this last minute deal renders that moot. He was coming off his entry-level contract, but this big raise is well deserved. He's established himself as a top-four defenseman in his first two NHL campaigns and has contributed offensively with 13 goals and 68 points in 160 career games. If the 24-year-old continues to develop then this will be a great contract for the Blues. As it is it already looks like a good price for Parayko.

Owen Tippett has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Florida Panthers.

Tippett was taken with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Among his greatest assets are his speed and shot, so naturally he has a lot of offensive upside. He'll be worth keeping an eye on during training camp, although he should be regarded as a bit of a long shot to make the team. "I'm thrilled to sign Owen to his first NHL contract," said Panthers GM Dale Tallon. "Owen is a natural goal scorer with a bright future and he already possesses NHL-ready size and speed. We're looking forward to watching him compete for a spot on our NHL roster at training camp this fall."

The Dallas Stars will get Valeri Nichushkin back in 2018-19.

Nichushkin has a season left on his contract with CSKA Moscow, but his intention is to return to North America once it's over. "I talked to Val, he had a commitment and he knew that going in," Stars GM Jim Nill said. "He talked to the team, and he knew he had to go back one more year. I had a good talk with him and told him you're going to playing in all the national team tournaments and get a chance to make the Olympics. Take advantage of it. It's a great year of development for him. He's excited about that. And then he comes back the following year." Nichushkin had 11 goals and 24 points in 36 KHL contests last season. He's got a lot of upside so he'll be worth keeping a close eye on once he's back in the NHL.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau has agreed to a three-year, $9.3 million contract.

Pageau would have gone through an arbitration hearing had he not been able to agree to terms with the Senators. This deal represents a big jump from his previous two-year, $1.8 million contract. The 24-year-old scored 12 goals and 33 points in 82 contests in 2016-17.

Nolan Patrick has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Patrick was taken with the second overall pick of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. He was projected to be the first selection going into the 2016-17 campaign, but he was dealing with an injury last season that hindered him and led to him having abdominal surgery on June 13. He's pain free now though, in contrast to the 2016-17 when he would play through a "sharp, shooting pain" in his lower stomach. There's a strong chance that he'll make the Flyers' squad and have a great rookie campaign.

Brian Campbell has decided to end his playing career and join the Blackhawks' operations department.

Campbell is bringing an end to a playing career that spanned 1,082 games. He scored 87 goals and 504 points with the Buffalo Sabres, Florida Panthers, Chicago Blackhawks, and San Jose Sharks. The defenseman surpassed the 40-point milestone on five different occasions and set a career-high of 62 points in 2007-08. He also won the Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2010. "I'm excited to transition into the next step in both my professional career and life," said Campbell. "I'm grateful to the countless number of teammates, coaches, team staff and fans that I have crossed paths with throughout my playing career in Chicago, Buffalo, Florida and San Jose. The Blackhawks organization has allowed me to take on this challenge and I'm thankful for this new opportunity."

The Vegas Golden Knights have signed Cody Glass to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Glass has the distinction of being the first selection in Vegas' franchise history and he was the sixth overall pick in 2017. He excelled with WHL Portland last season, scoring 32 goals and 94 points in 69 contests. It will probably take a year or two before he's playing in Vegas, but the playmaking forward has a bright future.

Nico Hischier has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the New Jersey Devils.

New Jersey took Hischier with the first overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. While nothing is guaranteed, it's a fairly safe bet that Hischier will start the campaign with New Jersey. He might even see playing time alongside Taylor Hall, which would go a long way towards him having an offensively productive rookie season. He scored 38 goals and 86 points in 57 QMJHL games last season and was a standout performer during the World Juniors with seven points in five games as a member of the Swiss team.
