Gionta (foot) returned to the lineup Saturday against the Capitals, skating for 12:01 in the loss.

The Devils labeled Gionta as a game-time decision for the second straight contest, but he ended up suiting up again to allow the Devils to roll out a full four lines. The center only has four points in 27 games and offers and is usually tasked with pitching in on the Devils' penalty kill.

Gionta will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

While Gionta was able to tough it out Thursday, it seems the team is considering sitting him down as to now aggravate the injury. The 31-year-old took a shot off his foot Tuesday and was held out of Saturday's morning skate.

Despite being questionable for Thursday's game against the Leafs due to a foot injury, Gionta slotted into the lineup and scored his first goal of the year. He went plus-1 and laid four hits in 11:28 of ice time.

Gionta doesn't provide much offense from the Devils' fourth line, but it's nice for the team that he's healthy enough to resume his grinding, typically defensively oriented role.

Gionta (foot) will attempt to play Thursday against the Maple Leafs, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.

Gionta didn't look to be operating at 100 percent while nursing the foot injury during morning skate, but with the Devils missing a number of players at forward Thursday, he'll attempt to tough it out. Fortunately, X-rays cleared Gionta of any sort of fracture to his foot, but because he's still presumably dealing with some pain, look for him to see light minutes on the Devils' fourth line.

Coach Pete DeBoer said there is a possibility that Gionta (foot) will play Thursday against the Maple Leafs, but it appears rather unlikely that will happen, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Gionta was on the ice before the Devils held their morning skate to test out his ailing foot, but left the ice just a few minutes later, suggesting he's not ready to resume playing. The Devils will revisit his condition closer to game time, but if he joins Jaromir Jagr (illness) and Patrik Elias (groin) in the press box, the Devils will have to make due with only 10 healthy forwards.

Gionta left Tuesday's game against the Penguins after taking a shot to the foot in the first period and will not return, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

In a physical match between the Devils and Penguins, Gionta was one of three New Jersey forwards to exit with an injury. He skated just 2:02 before briefly returned to the bench in the second period, but after testing out his foot on the ice during a stoppage in play, he retreated to the locker room. Expect team doctors to evaluate his foot for a possible fracture, with the Devils likely to provide an update on his condition prior to Thursday's game versus the Maple Leafs.
