  • Maple Leafs defeat Sharks in six-round shootout

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

The fight seemed to spark the Leafs, who snapped a three game losing streak. "Huge win for us".

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

"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.

The Islamic State (IS) militant group claimed responsibility through its Amaq news agency, although it provided no evidence to back up the claim.

Don't believe me? Thornton found this out the hard way when squaring off against Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri on Thursday evening, as his beard became collateral damage.

Kadri scored on a power play midway through the second for his 14th goal.

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

Dillon tied it with 52 seconds left in the first.

But everyone was talking about his fight with Thornton that started the night. "He's a big boy, I couldn't reach all the way across his shoulder and felt like I just grabbed him in the middle of his jersey and came down with a handful of hair".

Toronto killed Mitch Marner's high-sticking penalty in the final 1:50 of overtime. "I didn't let it affect me", he said. "Those are the bounces you wait for; that's what you've got to be patient for and positive about, because eventually those plays are going to happen". "We're good with this team at picking up each other if someone makes a mistake".

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