  • Maple Leafs defeat Sharks in six-round shootout

It's also now a little lighter than it was before his game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night, after a chunk of it was ripped out during a fight.

The Maple Leafs eventually defeated the Sharks 3-2 in a shootout, with Kadri scoring one of Toronto's two goals in the second period.

A hunk of Thornton's beard was left on the ice, ultimately finding its way to the glove of backup goalie Aaron Dell on the San Jose bench.

"I thought I was a hockey player, not a barber", Kadri said, wryly, after strands of Thornton's famous facial hair were torn out during a fight off the game's opening faceoff.

"We want to push the pace in this game", Leafs winger Matt Martin said at the morning skate, where the Leafs talked about their season-long inconsistencies with their starts to games.

Matthews and Tyler Bozak scored for the Leafs in the six-round shootout.

In a throwback display of truculence which mirrored a not-so-uncommon way of starting a game 'back in the day, ' Nazem Kadri and Joe Thornton dropped the gloves and went at it in Toronto Thursday night before numerous ACC's patrons even had a chance to take their seats.

Dillon tied it with 52 seconds left in the first. You still have a chance to win, and we're looking for that goal if we get that opportunity.

"I have no idea", he said.

"I ended up with a piece of it in my hand", Kadri said. "Nazem, with the way he plays, helps us every night anyway, whether it be matching up or generating offense". "By no means did I expect that". "I felt like he just came across with a slash, I gave him one and he gave me one back".

"I just had to stay patient".

Matthews made it 1-0 when he deflected a point shot from Connor Carrick between Jones' pads at 18:37 of the first period.
