Whether the Montreal Canadiens host the Lightning or begin the playoffs in Tampa Bay during an upcoming first-round series, they’ll be doing so without Alex Galchenyuk.

The team announced that he won’t be “available” for the first round of the 2014 playoffs because of a lower-body injury.

Galchenyuk, 20, has generated 31 points in 65 games played this season. He was starting to pick up lately, too, generating a three-game point streak before seeing that end in just a bit more than one minute of ice time on April 9.

    Why couldn’t it have been Douglas Murray?
