TORONTO -- Toronto Maple Leafs forward Darcy Tucker returned for Game 2 of a first-round playoff series against the Ottawa Senators after missing 14 games with an abdomen injury.

Tucker started on Toronto's top line with Mats Sundin and Gary Roberts. Tucker, who had 21 goals and 11 assists in 64 games this season, replaced Mikael Renberg, who aggravated a hamstring injury during practice Friday.

Toronto defenseman Ken Klee also returned, after missing eight games because of a shoulder injury. Klee replaced Aki Berg in the Maple Leafs' lineup.
