Emelin (lower body) resumed skating with the team Wednesday and has not been ruled out for Thursday's Game 5 clash.

Considering that Emelin has not scored a goal in his last 34 outings, fantasy owners probably shouldn't expect an offensive explosion if he slots back into the lineup. The blueliner's biggest contribution would likely come on the penalty kill, where he averaged 2:35 of ice time during the regular season -- although the Habs' shorthanded unit has been perfect without him thus far.
