1. When khaira is ready to play, it is easy to see. Its history of beating the advertising this year is worrying as it has now been published twice. His injury problems were a huge blow to him and the team. He’s played his best hockey as an NHLer when he’s healthy. He was solid on the defensive, moved the puck well, was successful in attack and effective in the PK.
“The comfort is 100 percent,” said Kharia today to Rob Tychkowski of the Journal of his return today.
Khaira said he rang his bell after being met by the Habs by Alexander Romamov three weeks ago, but added that he felt okay about himself walking down the tunnel. He said these were the first two concussion incidents he has ever had as a player. He worked hard to prepare. “Now it’s exciting that I have to come back tonight.”
