Good news everybody!
Frank Corrado takes initial line rush with Morgan Rielly. Looks like Frank's a go. #tmltalk— Paul Hendrick (@HennyTweets) November 1, 2016
The day we’ve all (apparently) been waiting for has arrived!
False alarm -- Frankie Corrado is cycling through pairings now. Likely indicates another scratch, but we'll ask #leafs coach Mike Babcock.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) November 1, 2016
WHY ARE YOU TOYING WITH OUR HEARTS LINE TWEETERS?
Fine, who knows what’s going on with Corrado, no one who isn’t Babcock that’s for sure. Maybe he’ll play, maybe he wont, just like the last nine games.
UPDATE: He will not be playing tonight. (This will probably change 3 more times)
In better more concrete news, Nikita Soshnikov has been recalled from the AHL Toronto Marlies. Soshnikov has been good for the Marlies, with 1 goal, 2 assists in 6 games. It looks like he’ll slot in on the fourth line with Matt Martin and Ben Smith
Zach Hyman - Auston Matthews - William Nylander
Connor Brown - Nazem Kadri - Leo Komarov
James van Riemsdyk - Tyler Bozak - Mitch Marner
Matt Martin - Ben Smith - Nikita Soshnikov
Morgan Rielly - Nikita Zaitsev
Martin Marincin - Connor Carrick
Jake Gardiner - Roman Polak
Last year in an eleven game stint with the Maple Leafs, Soshnikov scored two goals, three assists for five points.
Will we actually see him on the ice? Things look good, but you never know.
