Emelin Back Saturday, Prust Might Be Back

Alexei Emelin will return to the Canadiens lineup come Saturday at home to host the New York Rangers.

Defenceman Alexei Emelin, who is recovering from knee surgery, says he plans to make his return to the lineup on Saturday at home against the New York Rangers.


Brandon Prust who has been out since October 19th will travel with the team to Columbus but will not play Friday. Prust is aiming for a return against his former club the Rangers on Saturday, but there are still some question marks.

Brandon Prust, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, will also travel to Columbus to get checked by team doctors on Friday and hopes for a green light to return Saturday.
