Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ken Warren of Senators Extra at the Ottawa Citizen,
The holiday headache belongs to the folks trying to sell tickets to watch those players during the heavy slate of games at Scotiabank Place during the busiest – and most expensive – month of the year.
You could label it the “11 Days of Hockey Christmas.” Beginning with tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Senators will play 11 home games in the next 31 days. The Tampa Bay game kicks off a span of five games at Scotiabank Place in the next 12 days. There are nine games here before New Year’s. Holy hockey. That’s a lot of puck action for the most die-hard NHL fan, even at the best of times.
Now factor in the seasonal issues. Come December, the boxes on all of our calendars fill up fast. We’re reaching for our wallets more often. Does the following sound familiar? Find the perfect tree. Put up the lights. Go to the work party. Drop in at the neighbour’s get-together. Spend time with extended family. Don’t dare miss the kid’s school pageant or that piano recital. And my personal favourite: shopping in the malls.
