Based on Saturday's practice in Voorhees, it appears defenseman Andrej Meszaros will return to the lineup Sunday night in New Jersey, and that center Sean Couturier will sit out the game.

Meszaros was paired with Andreas Lilja for most of Saturday's practice; he sometimes was with Erik Gustafsson.

It appears Meszaros will be with Lilja, and that Gustafsson will be a healthy scratch.

Meszaros hasn't played since March 1; he had back surgery on March 21.

After practice, Meszaros would not say whether he is playing.

"You want to be out there," Meszaros said. "....But I've got a lot of years ahead of me, and it's a tough decision."

Couturier injured his leg in Thursday''s 4-3 OT loss. He skated for a few minutes before practice Saturday, but was not with the team at practice.

Coach Peter Laviolette juggled the lines at Saturday's session. Afterward, he said not to put much stock into them. Here is how they looked:

JVR-G-Simmonds.

Hartnell-Briere-Voracek.

Read-Schenn-Jagr.

Rinaldo-Talbot-Wellwood.
