Mike Komisarek's wait is over.

The veteran defenceman will be back in the Toronto Maple Leafs' lineup Tuesday against the Calgary Flames. Toronto coach Ron Wilson confirmed the change after a medical evaluation determined that Carl Gunnarson had suffered a high ankle sprain in practice on Monday.

Gunnarson has been put on the injured list. Komisarek had sat out the last six games as a healthy scratch.

Wilson also commented on what it would take for his team to beat the Flames, who won their last game in overtime against the Vancouver Canucks.

"I would suspect it won't be much different than the way Montreal played us," said Wilson, referring to the Leafs' shutout loss. "Clog up the middle, slow down our speed. We're going to have to be smart (with the puck)."
