Maple Leafs defeat Sharks in six-round shootout

Maple Leafs defeat Sharks in six-round shootout

Fights to start a game are less common, but not unheard of.

Also fact: Thornton's magnificent facial hair is a bit patchier after engaging in fisticuffs with Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri.

Yep, that's right, Kadri tore off an entire CHUNK of Thornton's beard.

The 38-year-old Thornton lost part of his impressive beard during the scrap, thanks to Kadri hanging on to his beard rather than his jersey as he was twirled around by the bigger Shark. When they got up, a large clump of fur was left on the ice, and within minutes there was a GIF of the beard-ripping on social media.

"This is a tough trip, and considering their situation and how desperate they are, they're a good team", San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said with two games left on a five-game road trip.

Kerala doctors observe strike against Centres' bill
More than two lakh doctors are observing a nationwide strike called by the Indian Medical Association ( IMA ) on Tuesday. As per the reports, the government is bringing up the new bill today.

Matthews scored on the first shootout attempt, and Kevin Labanc kept the tiebreaker going by scoring in the bottom of the third round.

Prior to the game's opening faceoff, San Jose center Joe Thornton and Leafs center Nazem Kadri lined up at the dot and got into a little skirmish.

Kadri ended a streak of 12 games without a point when Mitchell Marner's shot from the top of the right-wing circle deflected off his foot at 12:40 of the second period on the power play to give Toronto a 2-1 lead. "I have no idea how that happened".

What if I told you that having a beard has the occasional drawback when playing the game of hockey? I felt he came across with a slash there, then another one, and I gave one back. It was his first since November 30, a drought of 12 games.

Matthews, with his 18th of the season, and Sharks defenceman Brenden Dillon traded goals late in the first period.
