Montreal Canadiens winger Max Pacioretty missed Saturday's practice with flu-like symptoms and will be re-evaluated on Sunday prior to their game against New Jersey.
Michel Therrien said Lars Eller will return to the line-up. The decision was made Friday, prior to learning about Pacioretty. Therrien said Eller is part of the team and wants a healthy competition.
Tomas Kaberle took a puck in the face and left practice Saturday morning and did not return. He'll be evaluated Sunday as well.
