The Leafs expect to have Clarke MacArthur back in the lineup tonight when they take on the Habs in Montreal. MacArthur missed Thursday's game in Boston with a lower-body injury. He'll return to a line with Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin.

Tyler Bozak's status for tonight is in doubt. Bozak blocked a shot off the foot in the third period of the game in Boston. Ron Wilson said he'll be a game-time decision. If Bozak can't go, Matthew Lombardi will move up to play with Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul, with David Steckel joining the pair on power plays.

Mike Komisarek checks back in on the blue line after sitting as a healthy scratch in Boston. He'll be paired with John-Michael Liles.

James Reimer gets the start in goal. Reimer was 1-1-0 against Montreal last season with a 4.00 GAA and .884 SV%.

The Leafs defeated the Habs 2-0 in the season opener.
