Center Auston Matthews will be in the lineup for the Toronto Maple Leafs against the New York Rangers on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NHLN, CBC, MSG, NHL.TV) after missing six games with a concussion. "Good to get him back, period," coach Mike Babcock said after the morning skate at Madison Square Garden. Matthews was injured when he collided with Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly with 2:50 remaining in the third period of a 4-3 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Dec. 9. Matthews returned to play two more shifts but said he was not feeling well later that night and the next day. He confirmed Friday he sustained a concussion in the collision.
