Joe Thornton has chunk ripped out magnificent beard in brawl

At the end of the tilt, which featured Kadri skating away from Thornton while the Sharks center connected on a few blows, a large hunk of whiskers from Thornton's beard hit the ice like a tumbleweed, having been snatched from his face by Kadri.

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

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.

Frederik Andersen gave Chris Tierney a big gift but pulled the rug out from under him and the San Jose Sharks when it mattered.

Yep, that's right, Kadri tore off an entire CHUNK of Thornton's beard. "I'm playing with some great players who are looking for me to try to get me out of that slump", Kadri said.

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

"It was a good fight", said Leafs centre Auston Matthews, who scored the Leafs' other goal in regulation, then scored in the shootout along with Tyler Bozak to give Toronto two points.

The Leafs jumped ahead 2-1 at 12:40 of the second when Kadri redirected a Mitch Marner shot through Jones' five hole with his skate from the slot. "I didn't let it affect me", he said.

"Those are the bounces you wait for, that you have to be patient for and have got to be positive about because eventually those plays are going to happen". We want that good start tonight. We just don't see those very often.

Matthews opened the scoring with 1:23 left in the first period with his 18th of the season.
