BOSTON - Saku Koivu will be back in the Montreal Canadiens lineup for Game 6 of their series against the Boston Bruins.
The captain has missed more than three weeks with a fractured bone in his left foot but said he felt good enough after Saturday's morning skate to play later in the evening.
"I wouldn't miss this for the world," Koivu told reporters.
He resumed skating on Wednesday and has practised each day since.
Montreal leads the series 3-2.
