The line of Alex Galchenyuk, Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher led the charge in Montreals 4-1 win over Carolina on Tuesday. Galchenyuk recorded a hat trick with assists on all three goals by Pacioretty. Hes a young guy with a lot of potential, Therrien said of Galchenyuk. Were all aware of that. Games like this one give him confidence. Hes creating good chemistry with Pacioretty, and hes already very used to playing with Gallagher.

Granit Xhaka pushed Sergio Romero to a great save and Josip Drmic spoiled a great opportunity when he tried to chip the ball over the Argentina goalkeeper. When cracks started opening in the defence in the second half, goalkeeper Diego Benaglio kept Switzerland in the game, stopping Gonzalo Higuains header and Messis low shot in the 78th minute. Benaglio also saved a powerful attempt by Di Maria in extra time, and it looked like the Swiss would be able to push the game into a penalty shootout. Then, in the 118th, Rodrigo Palacio won the ball in midfield and fed Messi, who dribbled down the middle in trademark fashion, escaping a challenge from Swiss defender Fabian Schaer before poking the ball to Di Maria.
