After missing the last 24 games with a shoulder injury, Peter Regin returns to the lineup and will play on the Alfredsson line, but according to coach Paul MacLean, he will not be taking faceoffs. Matt Carkner will also play in his first regular season game Saturday after completing a conditioning stint in Binghamton. Sergei Gonchar is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
