Apparently you’re supposed to contact your doctor if your resting heart-rate is consistently above 100 beats-per-minute.

I guess I’ll have to have his number ready to go on speed dial tonight.

Tonight, the Canadiens will hit the ice in front of what will be an incredibly energized crowd, with almost a week off since last Friday’s overtime win that nearly took the roof off the Bell Centre.

It looks like the Canadiens will be getting Alexei Emelin back tonight, who has been out since April 5 with a lower body injury. Emelin will be paired on the third pairing with Nathan Beaulieu to start the game, keeping the top two pairings we’ve seen so far in this series in tact.

It also appears the Canadiens will be going back to the same forward configuration that they started with Tuesday night in New York, meaning Max Pacioertty and Alex Radulov are reunited.

Puck Drop is 7:00 PM EST / 4:00 PM PST
