Joe Thornton has a handful of his beard ripped out during fight

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

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

Fact: San Jose Sharks center Joe Thornton has one of the best beards in the National Hockey League.

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

After the two players fell to the ice and were broken up by the linesmen, Kadri could be seen dropping a huge chunk of Thornton's beard on the ice.

After Bozak scored, Chris Tierney tried to extend the shootout for the Sharks, but his shot banged off the post, allowing Toronto to stop its three-game losing streak. The lead lasted a bit longer this time before San Jose tied it late in the period. "They were great in the room (in the second intermission) and said right away to just forget about it and they would come to battle for me, which they did". It was Kadri's first point since November 30. "I had no idea how I ended up with beard".

"I had to stay patient", Kadri 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".

"Nazem is one of the guys on the team who nothing bothers, but when you haven't scored in a while, you know you haven't scored, you like the numbers to go up".

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. It's so important in our game - our game is every night, it's a grind, it's hard.
