SUNRISE, Fla. -- Winners of five of their last six, the Toronto Maple Leafs will stick with the same lineup when they face the Florida Panthers Monday night.
The Leafs, however, could have defenseman Carl Gunnarsson back soon.
Gunnarsson, who has missed the last eight games because of a hip injury, took part in the morning skate.
"He's going to be an option for us very shortly," coach Randy Carlyle said. "We'll have to think that one through because we've got some people that have been performing fairly well for us. These are decisions that are tough ones but good ones for the organization going forward."
With James Riemer on injured reserve with a knee injury, Ben Scrivens will make his third consecutive start in net for the Maple Leafs. Scrivens is coming off his first career shutout, a 34-save effort in a 3-0 victory against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.
Here is the Maple Leafs' projected lineup for Monday night’s game against the Florida Panthers:
James van Riemsdyk - Tyler Bozak - Phil Kessel
Leo Komarov - Mikhail Grabovski - Nikolai Kulemin
Clarke MacArthur - Nazem Kadri - Colton Orr
Frazer McLaren - Jay McClement - Mike Brown
Dion Phaneuf - Korbinian Holzer
John-Michael Liles - Michael Kostka
Mark Fraser - Cody Franson
Injured: G James Reimer (knee), D Carl Gunnarsson (hip), RW Matt Frattin (knee), RW LW Joffrey Lupul (forearm)
Scratches: D Mike Komisarek, C David Steckel
