Kukla's Korner Hockey

Remember that big lead the Habs had, battling at the top of the Eastern Conference? Well, now they have a two point cushion on eighth.
Tomorrow? Boston. Tonight: Philadelphia.
Not the easiest way to pad the win column.
The good news? Scott Gomez is back, and ready to go, likely lining up with Brian Gionta and the recently recalled Max Pacioretty. That should give the Habs a little bit of spark up front.
As you may know from my previous columns, I agree with just about every media member and pundit going back the last decade. The Habs need more size up front. Does the AHL goal scoring leader Pacioretty add that Absolutely. Can he have the same offensive impact in the NHL? We’ll have a good idea in a couple of hours.
Jaroslav Spacek is also back. Whether that is good news I leave up to you to decide. Yanick Weber appears to be the odd man out on defence.
The frustrating news? I still don’t have my repaired computer back from Apple. Come on guys, do I have to call Steve Jobs to get swift service? Can’t you fix a computer in two weeks?
The puck drops at 7:30 tonight, a little later than normal for Les Glorieux. The next two nights will go a long way towards determining where the Habs stand at the Christmas break.
We’re in for some good hockey.
