Report: Toronto Maple Leafs to sign mysterious prospect Yegor Korshkov

Report: Toronto Maple Leafs to sign mysterious prospect Yegor Korshkov The Toronto Maple Leafs may be close to bringing in one of their prospects, as NHL.com’s Igor Eronko reports that Yegor Korshkov is set to sign in Toronto. Korshkov, the Maple Leafs’ second-round pick from 2016, has been playing in the KHL for the last five years with many wondering if he’d ever come over. Of course, Korshkov, who is currently playing with Yaroslavl Lokomotiv in the second round of the Gargarin Cup playoffs, isn’t eligible to sign a contract until the team is eliminated. They are current underdogs in this round to SKA St. Petersburg, but it may still be a few weeks before the Maple Leafs can begin negotiations to bring Korshkov aboard.

Alex Pietrangelo scored two goals and Brayden Schenn picked up a career-high four assists in the Blues' 6 -4 win against the Maple Leafs .

Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews, back, celebrates Zach Hyman's (not shown) goal on Carolina Hurricanes goalie Scott Darling (33) during the second period of an NHL Teravainen took possession and fed the puck to Rask, who one-timed it past Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen.

Tampa Bay opened the scoring 10:07 into the first when McDonagh's pass in front went off Johnson's skate and past Andersen for his 23rd goal.

The Lightning made it 2-0 with 1:22 left in period when Cirelli's deft deflection from the slot fooled Andersen for his 14th.

Tampa Bay added three more in the second. Johnson got a tap-in and Braydon Coburn made it 4-0 when his shot hit Palat and ricocheted in off Matthews for his eighth, chasing Andersen.

Matthews got Toronto on the board at 11:49 when he stepped past Point and beat Vasilevskiy for his 31st off the rush. But Paquette responded for Tampa Bay, finishing off a 3-on-1 for a short-handed goal with 1:44 left in the period.

Fans then voiced their displeasure with boos as the Leafs, who still sit in fifth in the overall standings, headed to the locker room for the second intermission.

NOTES: McDonagh played the 600th game of his career. ... The Leafs and Lightning play one more time in the regular season April 4 at Scotiabank Arena.
