Meszaros tallied two goals -- including the game-winner -- in Monday's 4-1 triumph over the Coyotes.

It's the second straight two-goal performance for Meszaros, who had lit the lamp just three times in his previous 52 games this season. Though Meszaros' outburst has come far too late in the year to change the Sabres' fortunes, the impending free agent might have shown potential suitors that he still has some offensive upside to offer.

Meszaros potted a pair of goals and fired four shots on goal in Saturday's loss to Colorado.

That's five goals and 11 points in 53 games for Meszaros, who's been averaging 17:38 of ice time. Don't expect much more production from the 29-year-old, as he had previously gone through a nine-game pointless drought and only has 10 shots on goal in his last nine games.

Meszaros (hand) will play in Friday's game against the Devils.

Meszaros returned to practice Thursday, after missing games on Monday and Tuesday. He figures to skate alongside Nikita Zadorov on the second defensive pairing, while fellow blueliner Zach Bogosian (lower body) will miss at least one more game

Meszaros (hand) took part in Thursday's practice, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

Meszaros' participation in practice gives him a shot at playing Friday against the Devils, but the team hasn't provided an official ruling on his status just yet. The rearguard has missed the Sabres' last two games due to the injury.

Coach Ted Nolan indicated Monday that Meszaros (hand) could be forced to "miss a few games" due to his injury.

Meszaros ended up sitting out Monday's game against the Capitals, and it's probably safe to rule him out for at least Tuesday's contest against the Bruins as well. The Sabres also figure to be without Zach Bogosian (lower body) on Tuesday, paving the way for AHL call-up Chad Ruhwedel to enter the lineup yet again.

Meszaros (hand) won't play Monday against the Caps.

With both Meszaros and Zach Bogosian sidelined, look for the Sabres to recall a blueliner in advance of Monday's contest.

Meszaros suffered a hand injury Monday morning, reports Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald.

The extent of Meszaros' injury is still unknown, but it's believed to be a re-aggravated injury. Chad Ruhwedel is reportedly being called up, which means Meszaros is expected to miss at least a game or two. Meszaros has been a marginal player for the Sabres this season, sometimes sitting as a healthy scratch, and has nine points in 48 games so far. Last Saturday against Washington, Meszaros left the game early after taking a shot from Brooks Laich, but did not miss any games, but it looks like he'll be missing tonight's re-match against Washington.

Based on warmups, Meszaros (upper body) is in line to play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs.

With both Meszaros (who has nine points in 46 games to date) and Zach Bogosian in line to suit up Wednesday, Andre Benoit looks set to be the Sabres' scratch on defense for the contest.

Meszaros (upper body) participated in the Sabres' morning skate and could be in the lineup Wednesday against the Maple Leafs.

While an injured player's participation in morning skate is normally an indicator that he'll play, coach Ted Nolan wouldn't firmly commit to Meszaros being in the lineup. Instead, with Zach Bogosian (lower body) also a bit banged up, the Sabres will have seven defensemen take part in pregame warmups. Nolan said he would let the six healthiest defensemen play, and there's no guarantee that Meszaros will be among that group. His status should be known one way or the other by the conclusion of the warmup.

Maestros, who suffered an upper-body injury in Saturday's loss to the Capitals, practiced fully Tuesday and says he's ready to go Wednesday when the Sabres play in Toronto, The Buffalo News reports.

Meszaros was considered unlikely to play Wednesday, but apparently he's rallied and sounds like he'll return earlier than expected. We'll note that coach Ted Nolan hasn't signed off yet, so we'll wait for official word from the team when they set Wednesday's blue line pairings following the morning skate.
