Not sure if you can blame it on the full moon, but the game between the San Jose Sharks and the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Center in LA had some fierceness and weirdness.
For fierce, you need to to go to this website and see for yourself:
> Drew Doughty got into his first career fight against Joe Thornton. Thornton, who fought a few times a season earlier in his career, hadn’t had a fight in almost three years.
> Ryane Clowe had a pair of fights. His first was against Matt Greene and it came shortly after the Thornton-Doughty fight. His second came in the second period vs Kyle Clifford. Clowe fared well in both bouts and had a goal and an assist: a supersized Gordie Howe Hat Trick. Thornton also picked up a GHHT.
Clowe was also involved in a really weird play that he later referred to as a “brain cramp.” Late in the third period, while sitting on the bench, he extended his stick onto the ice to break up a possible scoring threat. For real!
â€œWhat do you think my thoughts are?, Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. â€œYou canâ€™t call too many men on the ice. What do you call it-too many sticks?
And for those of you who are wondering, the Sharks won 6-5 via a shootout.
