Lupul (hand) will return to the Maple Leafs lineup on Wednesday.
Lupul missed the last 12 games with a broken hand that he suffered on October 28th. He struggled before the injury, scoring just two goals and one assist in nine games. He has skated on the fourth line with Trevor Smith and David Booth over the last few days, so expect him to start there tomorrow vs. Pittsburgh.

Maple Leafs’ head coach Randy Carlyle said that Lupul should go through two or three practices before returning to the lineup, so don’t expect to see him out there tomorrow, but maybe Saturday vs. the Red Wings. He has been out since October 28th.
Lupul will wear a cast on his injured hand for a minimum of 10 days before he can put a glove back on it and get some mobility back, according to coach Carlyle, who added the winger won't go on the team's upcoming road trip. With Lupul out, the Leafs recalled forward Sam Carrick from the AHL and he made his NHL debut last night.
