Montreal Canadiens defenceman Jeff Petry returned to the lineup against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

"It's been six-seven games that he hasn't played, (for Petry) it's about getting back in the train for the rest of the year," head coach Martin St-Louis said during his pre-game media availability.

Petry had missed seven games with a lower-body injury. He has four goals and 12 assists in 57 games this season.
