Habs Emelin (Undisclosed) Not On Ice For Warmups

News: Alexei Emelin (undisclosed) is not on the ice for warmups in advance of Thursday's game against the Rangers, The Gazette reports.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin remains a game-time call as he continues to deal with what's believed to be a knee injury. The fact that he's not on the ice isn't exactly a positive indication, but the team is yet to officially rule him out. Check back prior to game-time for a more definitive update.

Habs' Emelin Officially A Game-Time Decision

News: Coach Michel Therrien is calling Alexei Emelin (undisclosed) a game-time decision in advance of Thursday's Game 6, John Lu of TSN Montreal reports.
Analysis: Though Alexei Emelin didn't participate in morning skate, he was seen riding a stationary bike near the locker room during the session. The Habs will wait and see if Emelin can make enough progress prior to the pregame skate before deciding if he'll be available for Game 6.

Habs' Emelin Likely Out For Game 6

News: Alexei Emelin (undisclosed) wasn't on the ice for morning skate and it appears as though he'll be out for Thursday's Game 6 vs. the Rangers, Arpon Basu of LNH.com reports.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin missed Game 5 after suffering what coach Michel Therrien termed a "body injury" in the preceding game. It appears he's not yet fully recovered from the ailment, so look for Nathan Beaulieu to once again take his spot in the lineup.

Habs' Emelin Has 'Body Injury'

News: Alexei Emelin was indeed injured in Game 4, but the team would only say that it was a "body injury," TSN's John Lu reports.
Analysis: Obviously, the Habs are being pretty secretive here, and the nature and seriousness of the injury remain unclear. With Montreal winning Game 5, consider Alexei Emelin questionable for Game 6 after he was sidelined for Tuesday's contest.

Habs' Emelin Dealing With Injury

News: The Canadiens announced Alexei Emelin was held out of Game 5 due to an undisclosed injury, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: As anticipated, Alexei Emelin's scratch from Game 5 wasn't merely a coach's decision, with the defensemen's injury likely stemming from Game 4. The Canadiens haven't clarified the nature of the injury, but it's almost certainly related to the blocked shot attempt that forced Emelin to miss a large chunk of the first period of the previous game.

Habs' Emelin Out For Game 5

News: Alexei Emelin was not on the ice for pregame warmups and looks like he'll be unavailable for Tuesday's Game 5, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Though no news of an injury has been relayed by the Canadiens, Alexei Emelin did miss a large portion of the first period of Game 4 after blocking a shot. He could still be feeling a little sore as a result of the injury, which might explain his absence for Tuesday's elimination game. The Habs will try to get by with Nathan Beaulieu entering the lineup in place of Emelin.

Habs' Emelin Collects Two Assists Wednesday

News: Alexei Emelin dished out two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 OT win over the Lightning.
Analysis: The blueliner finished the regular season with just three goals and 14 assists in 59 games, so it's unlikely that he'll be able to maintain his Game 1 scoring pace.

Habs' Emelin Will Sit Wednesday

News: Alexei Emelin (rest) won't travel to Chicago for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Both Alexei Emelin and defensive partner Andrei Markov will take therapy days Wednesday in preparation for the playoffs. Look for Francis Bouillon and Nathan Beaulieu to enter the lineup Wednesday in place of the two resting blueliners.

Habs' Emelin Hits Hard

News: Alexei Emelin had eight hits along with an assist and four blocked shots in Saturday night's 5-3 win over Detroit. He has points in two straight games and leads Montreal with 186 hits.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin was slow to recover from last season's knee injury, but is in good form for the playoff push. In the last 11 games, he's at plus-8 with a goal and seven assists.

Habs' Emelin Dealing With Family Issue

News: Alexei Emelin will be back with the team Tuesday after returning home Monday to attend to a family matter, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: The blueliner missed Monday's practice while he was back in Montreal, but should be available for Tuesday's matchup with the Lightning. Alexei Emelin has three goals and 12 assists in 54 games this season, but has been on a hot streak lately, collecting three points in his last four contests.

Habs' Emelin Gets Third Goal Of Season

News: Alexei Emelin registered the Habs' only goal in their shootout win over the Bruins on Monday.
Analysis: The power-play goal was somewhat fluky for Alexei Emelin, as his shot from the blue line ricocheted off the Bruins' Chris Kelly from about 30 feet away, out of the reach of goalie Tuukka Rask. In any case, it's a nice feather in the cap for Emelin, who only has 13 points in 51 games and provides most of his utility in the hits and blocked shots categories.

Habs' Emelin Scores First

News: Alexei Emelin scored his first goal of the season in Thursday night's win over Boston. He added three shots on goal, four blocked shots and a game-high six hits.
Analysis: A very satisfying night for Alexei Emelin, who hasn't had many like this since returning from a leg injury in mid-November. He's plus-3 in the last two games, both Montreal wins.

Canadiens' Emelin Plays Saturday

News: Alexei Emelin (thigh) played 19:48 in Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin was able to bounce back quickly after a slap shot off the inside of his left thigh forced him to exit Friday night's loss to Detroit.

Canadiens' Emelin Leaves In Third Period

News: Alexei Emelin left Friday night's 4-1 loss to Detroit in the third period after being struck by a slap shot on the inside of his left thigh, the Montreal Gazette reports. With Montreal scheduled to play at home Saturday night against Washington, Emelin should be considered questionable.
Analysis: Until the injury, Alexei Emelin's night didn't go so well. His boarding penalty handed the Red Wings a 5-on-3 man advantage that led to Detroit's first goal. Later, his clearing attempt was intercepted in the neutral zone and resulted in the Wings' second marker.

Habs' Emelin Back In Lineup Friday

News: Alexei Emelin, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday, will be back in the lineup Friday night against Detroit, the Montreal Gazette reports. He'll start the game on a pairing with Andrei Markov.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin's a big hitter and provides some thump on Montreal's blue line, but he's on ice for a lot of the opponents' even-strength goals. He's minus-11 for the season and minus-12 since the beginning of December.

Habs' Emelin Will Be Scratched Wednesday

News: Alexei Emelin will be a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Penguins, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin's defensive partner Raphael Diaz will also be a scratch, so it appears that Douglas Murray and Francis Bouillon will both dress to replace them. Emelin has six assists in 28 games this season.

Habs' Emelin Has Strong Game

News: Alexei Emelin had an assist, three blocked shots, six hits and was plus-2 in Saturday night's 2-1 overtime win over Chicago.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin played his best game in nearly a month, and it comes after the Russian played just nine minutes in Wednesday's loss to Philadelphia.

Habs' Emelin Gets Limited Ice Time

News: Alexei Emelin received just 8:58 of ice time in Wednesday night's 3-1 loss to Philadelphia. He was minus-1 with one blocked shot in the loss.
Analysis: Coach Michel Therrien dressed seven defenseman, so someone was going to be on the short end of minutes. Only fourth-line forward Michael Bournival spent less time on the ice than Alexei Emelin on Wednesday. The Russian defenseman, who was scratched for a game last week, has fallen out of favor of late. If you employ him for production in the hits category, you'll have to ride out this rough patch.

Montreal's Emelin Metes Out Punishment

News: Alexei Emelin returned to the lineup Saturday night after a one-game healthy scratch and had eight hits in a 4-3 overtime loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: Coach Michel Therrien gave the Russian defenseman a night off Thursday because he felt Alexei Emelin was hitting a wall. The only thing Emelin was hitting Saturday was the opponent. His eight hits were a season high.

Habs' Emelin Returns To Lineup

News: Alexei Emelin, who was a healthy scratch Thursday night, will return to the active lineup Saturday night at home against Ottawa, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: To clear a spot for Alexei Emelin's return, Raphael Diaz will sit in the press box for the first time this season. If you're trolling for production in the hits category, Emelin will be useful.

Habs' Emelin Hits Wall

News: Alexei Emelin was a healthy scratch from Thursday night's game in Dallas because coach Michel Therrien felt the defenseman had hit a wall, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin, who had missed the first 20 games of the season while rehabbing from knee surgery, had initially been quite good in his return to the ice. However, he was minus-12 in his previous 10 games and was given a break.

No Additional Discipline For Canadiens' Emelin

News: The NHL has decided not to hold a hearing into Alexei Emelin's elbowing major on the Flyers' Steve Downie, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Alexei Emelin's penalty that resulted in a game misconduct triggered a review by the league office. The decision to not hold a hearing means Emelin will not face any supplemental discipline.

Habs' Emelin Bounced From Game

News: Alexei Emelin received a major penalty and a game misconduct for elbowing Philadelphia's Steve Downie in the second period of Thursday night's loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: The game misconduct triggers an automatic review by the NHL's Department of Player Safety to determine whether supplemental discipline is warranted.

Habs' Emelin (Knee) Returns To Action

News: Alexei Emelin (knee) returned to action Saturday against the Rangers. He played 16:04 and registered two blocked shots and three hits.
Analysis: He also have two giveaways, but those can be forgiven in his first game back. He skated on the third pairing with Francis Bouillon and survived an early hit that was very much like the one that knocked him out for so long. He'll be a steady contributor in hits and blocked shots, so scoop him up before you league-mates figure out he's available.
