Andrej Meszaros D BUF 10 Days

Meszaros assisted on one of six Sabres goals in Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs.

Meszaros had been a healthy scratch for the Sabres' previous three games, but Saturday's effort was a positive step in working his way out of coach Ted Nolan's doghouse. The 29-year-old has thus far failed to add the scoring punch to the blue line the Sabres were hoping for, as he's provided just two points in 13 games.

Meszaros will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Bruins, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

Meszaros will serve as a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes.

Signed to a one-year, $4.125 million contract in the offseason, Meszaros (one point, minus-6 rating) hasn't done much to stabilize a Sabres defense that has surrendered 131 shots in its first three games. Though Meszaros' tepid start to season is discouraging, coach Ted Nolan was careful to note that the onus for his team's struggles doesn't entirely fall on the blueliner. "Meszaros is not going to be the first casualty. We just need him playing better but we can't sit out 10 guys. We only have a limited group so nobody's safe from that position." Expect Meszaros to return to the lineup for the Sabres' weekend homestand, but his plus/minus rating will only steadily fall from here.

Andrej Meszaros participated in his first full Bruins' practice Friday.

That said, there is a good chance he will be a healthy scratch again Saturday against the Lightning as Boston coach Claude Julien seemed very pleased with the six rearguards he dressed for Thursday's 3-0 win over Washington. Corey Potter, who was also recently added to the Bruins' roster, may also sit in the press box. "It's pretty apparent to me now that there is competition back there," Julien said. "We've got to give those guys an opportunity to feel their way into this team. There is an opportunity for us to get to know them and them to get to know us. That's where we are right now". We would keep Mezaros on reserve until he plays in a game.
