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.
