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.

Therrien added that Galchenyuk has been earning a lot of respect from the veteran players and has been a good teammate.

Brian Gionta during his scrum joked that the Habs will have to watch out for number 11 on the Devils Sunday, as he's a really good player.  The number 11, of course, is his brother Stephen.

The Habs will not hold a morning skate on Sunday.
