After Hours: How Habs' Gallagher uses size to his advantage

Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher sat down with Scott Oake and Kelly Hrudey Saturday night to talk about how he uses his five-foot-nine frame to his advantage.

His smaller stature may not intimidate many, but that hasn't stopped Brendan Gallagher from playing like a giant on the ice. 

The five-foot-nine, 178-pound Montreal Canadiens forward has enjoyed a solid start to the 2013-14 season with two goals and three assists in five games and hasn't skipped a beat since his 15-goal rookie campaign last year. 

He sat down with Scott Oake and Kelly Hrudey on After Hours on Hockey Night in Canada Saturday night to discuss how he's been able to use his quickness to his advantage at the NHL level and be successful in his young career. 

Vancouver Canucks forward Mike Santorelli also joined Oake and Hrudey to try and dissect his club's loss to the Habs.
