    A detour to deja vu in Boston, Corrado clears waivers, sent to Marlies

    Defenseman Frank Corrado cleared waivers on Sunday and has been assigned to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League. 

    The Leafs had to open up a spot on the 23-man roster when they claimed blueliner Alexei Marchenko from Detroit and finally gave the Toronto native a chance to get some playing time, who has played two games for the Leafs and seven games with the Marlies on an AHL conditioning stint.

    With defensive depth a sought after commodity down the stretch, it was slightly surprising that no NHL club put in a claim for the right-handed shooting Corrado, but his lack of game action this season may have been a deterrent.

    TSN’s Kristen Shilton indicated that a couple NHL teams had made inquiries about Corrado earlier in the season, which could mean a trade for a low round draft pick for minor leaguer is possible. 

    GM Lou Lamoriello said in a radio interview on Saturday that he hoped the 23-year-old blueliner would be picked up by another team and given an opportunity to play. With just over three weeks until the NHL trade deadline, it is likely that Corrado gets plenty of ice time with the Marlies for NHL scouts to get a look. 


    *******

    If you thought you were seeing a flashback to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarter Final three years ago, you were not alone. 



    The Maple Leafs led the Boston Bruins 4-1 on the strength of a hat trick from William Nylander on Saturday, but the pesky Beantowners charged back after pulling goalie Tuukka Rask, scoring twice before the end of the middle frame and tying the game midway through the third on a power play goal by Ryan Spooner.



    Unlike May 2013, Toronto did not crumble in the face of adversity and rebounded twice in the final five minutes of regulation. Connor Brown converted on a Zach Hyman pass to put the Leafs up 5-4 and after nemesis Patrice Bergeron tied the score once again, James van Riemsdyk fired a long shot past Boston backup Zane McIntyre with 1:36 remaining for the game-winner. 



    “It went in for us, it went in for them. In the end, (Frederik Andersen) was able to make enough saves at the end and we were able to get a win.” Head coach Mike Babcock said after the game.”I've been in a number of these over the years where your club doesn't win in a while and it's usually ugly when you finally do win. That was the ugly one and we appreciate winning.”

    Saturday was another nightmarish performance for defenseman Martin Marincin, who played against the Bruins for the first time since being injured at TD Garden on December 10. 

    Marincin has been a liability on the blueline in all three post All-Star break road games and took three minor penalties on Saturday, prompting Babcock to limit his ice time to 11:28. 

    Jake Gardiner, who traditionally saves his best performances for Boston, lead Toronto in TOI with 25:41 and was +3 on the night. 

    Morgan Rielly played over 22 minutes, but was hampered most of the night after getting tangled with Boston’s David Backes in the first period. The defenseman returned on Thursday after missing six games with an ankle sprain and struggled to get to the bench on a couple of occasions.

    Rielly was the only member of the Leafs absent from practice in New Jersey on Sunday morning and his status for Monday’s contest against the New York Islanders in Brooklyn is in question.
