Marleau, Leafs win rematch with Sharks in shootout

Marleau, Leafs win rematch with Sharks in shootout

But he got a bit of an unexpected trim during a fight on Thursday night.

Joe Thornton and Kadri set the tone for the feisty affair, fighting just two seconds into the game.

Kadri managed to rip a large chunk of hair out of Thornton's beard as they were tangled up during the fight.

One would imagine that didn't exactly feel great for the 38-year-old Thornton, but it's quite amusing to see Kadri casually drop a handful of beard to the ice like he accidentally found a very large dust bunny.

"I thought we did lots of really good things", Toronto coach Mike Babcock said.

Patrick Marleu evened the score with his old friends, winning the rematch against his former-team on home ice in a shootout.

The game, incidentally, started with a bang when Sharks centre Joe Thornton and Leafs counterpart Nazem Kadri exchanged slashes just before the opening faceoff.

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'm playing with some great players who are looking for me to try to get me out of that slump", Kadri said. He handed it to Tierney, who easily converted the gift into his ninth goal of the season to tie the score. It's so important in our game - our game is every night, it's a grind, it's hard. "I have no idea how that happened". I'm a hockey player not a barber. "I felt I pulled him in the middle of his jersey, and I came down with a hand full of hair". It was Kadri's first point since November 30.

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