Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin states he's "exceptionally dissatisfied" with comments made by Philadelphia Flyers coach Alain Vigneault about a play involving Montreal winger Brendan Gallagher before it was revealed he had a broken jaw.

Bergevin says Gallagher will miss "a prolonged time period and will be eating his meals out of a straw," after he was cross-checked by Flyers defenceman Matt Niskanen in Montreal's win in Game 5 of their playoff series Wednesday.

After the Habs verified Gallagher suffered a broken jaw Thursday and will be out for the rest of the series, the NHL suspended Niskanen for one video game. That suggests the defenceman will miss Game 6 tonight in Toronto.

The Flyers lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
