After another loss, this time a 4-1 sinker to the San Jose Sharks, frustrations mounted for the Washington Capitals, and right wing Garney Hathaway wasted no time in showing it, dropping the gloves with the San Jose Sharks’ Jonah Gadjovich after the final buzzer.
After being unable to score with goaltender Ilya Samsonov pulled, the Sharks added an empty-net goal to seal the deal and down the Caps 4-1. Just moments off the final draw of the game, Hathaway and Gandjovich dropped the mitts, and the officials let the boys get it all out before ending the fisticuffs.
