Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher said Boston Bruins defender Zdeno Chara called him to apologize for cross-checking him in the throat last week, according to Sportsnet's Eric Engels.

Chara viciously cross-checked Gallagher during their tilt last Wednesday and then mocked him for embellishing the hit. Chara received a minor penalty and Gallagher received a roughing penalty on the play.

Chara avoided a suspension for the hit and was fined $5,000 instead.

Gallagher added he was appreciative of the gesture.
