Erik Cole says there is no instant cure for what one reporter described as Michael Cammalleri's little slump.

At a time when the Canadiens are in desperate need of scoring, Cammalleri goes into Wednesday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks (7:30 p.m., RDS, TSN, TSN Radio-990) with only one goal in his last 12 games. With six goals in 29 games, he's on pace for a 16-goal season.
