Leafs bite Sharks for win in OT after rare Andersen gaffe

Despite shootout loss Sharks show they're a confident group in third period against Leafs

Thursday night's Sharks-Maple Leafs game in Toronto got off to a rather interesting (and hairy) start. "Huge win for us".

As Thornton was in the penalty box following the fight, the beard trimming eventually ended up on the Sharks' bench.

"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.

Thornton ands Kadri exchanged words in the faceoff circle prior to the opening draw, prompting the Sharks alternate captain to drop the gloves and challenge the Maple Leafs shutdown center to a fight.

Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen, playing in his 100th game as a Leaf, stopped five of six Sharks in the shootout.

Dillon tied it with 52 seconds left in the first.

Martin has seen another of his books, Nightflyers, given the greenlight by Syfy in the USA and Netflix internationally. If reports are to be believed, the episodes of the upcoming series will be longer compared to the previous ones.

Toronto snapped a three-game losing streak and a 10-game slid (0-8-2) against the Sharks. "It's a good point, but you leave a little disappointed because I thought we had two or three chances in the third period to get two points and then a couple chances in the shootout and overtime".

"I think energy is contagious", Babcock said.

Kadri said the fight was Thornton's idea and he isn't sure why.

"He asked me. He initiated", Kadri said. "I felt like I just grabbed him in the middle of his jersey and just came down with a handful of his hair". "By no means did I expect that".

Kadri had a more enjoyable moment at 12:40 in the second period when he redirected a feed from Mitch Marner to score a power-play goal that gave the Leafs a 2-1 lead.

"I had to stay patient", Kadri said. I was able to react quick enough to direct that puck towards the net and it happened to go in.
