Mike Fisher is ready to roll.

The Senators centre will return to the lineup tomorrow night against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Place.

Fisher, who has missed two games as a result of a knee injury he suffered against the New York Rangers a week ago at Madison Square Garden told coach Craig Hartsburg this morning he is ready to play.

"Fish is in. That's good news for us," said Hartsburg. "He was playing pretty well when he got hurt and we look at him as a big part of our team."

Centre Dean McAmmond wasn't on the ice today because of a sore throat. He is expected to play tomorrow.

Alex Auld will make his seventh straight start in the club's net.
