Tomas Kaberle returned to the Garden last night for the second time this season, with his third team in seven months.

Kaberle, who won a Stanley Cup with the Bruins in June, signed a surprisingly lucrative deal with the Carolina Hurricanes in the offseason, worth $4.25 million annually for three years. On Dec. 9, Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford decided he'd made an egregious mistake and, with the Canadiens desperate for help on the blue line, was able to dump the contract on the Habs for Jaroslav Spacek.

However, Kaberle has five assists in as many games since joining Montreal, and he finally may have found a place where he'll flourish.
