Ottawa Senators goaltender Matt Murray has been scratched from his start against the Toronto Maple Leafs Sunday after suffering an upper-body injury in warmup.

Joey Daccord will make his fifth career start in Murray's place, with Kevin Mandolese -- who has never appeared in an NHL game -- backing up.

Daccord's last start came on Friday in a 6-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Senators centre Colin White, who missed one game with a lower-body injury, is back in the lineup Sunday.
