A shoulder injury has forced Scott Gomez out of the Montreal Canadiens lineup for their game Saturday against Toronto.

Gomez missed practice Friday and was to have an MRI. In six games this season, Gomez has no goals and one assist.

Veteran Jaroslav Spacek also has an upper-body injury, believed to be to his ribs. The defenceman has returned to practice but is unlikely to play Saturday, Canadiens coach Jacques Martin said.

Defenceman Andrei Markov, recovering from surgery on his right knee, will continue his rehabilitation in Florida for another week.
