Gunnarsson returns to Leafs' lineup

SUNRISE, Fla.Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Carl Gunnarsson is back in the lineup Monday night against the Florida Panthers.

Gunnarsson had missed the previous eight games because of a hip injury. He took part in the morning skate Monday and coach Randy Carlyle said he would become available soon.

With Gunnarsson back, John-Michael Liles was scratched by the Leafs.

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
