MONTREAL - Fredrik Sjostrom is to return to the Toronto Maple Leafs lineup to replace the injured Colby Armstrong for their Saturday night rendezvous with the Montreal Canadiens.

Sjostrom was a healthy scratch in Toronto's 2-1 loss to New Jersey on Thursday.

He is skating on a line with Kris Versteeg and Darryl Boyce.

Montreal winger Mathieu Darche took part in the team's morning skate but will not be ready to return from a lower body injury until Tuesday against Buffalo.

Defenceman Hal Gill will also miss a second game with an upper body ailment. Michael Cammalleri remains sidelined with a shoulder injury.

The Leafs beat Montreal in two of their first three meetings this season, both times on home ice.
