Final Buzzer Beaters: Garnet Hathaway and Sharks’ Jonah Gadjovich Drop the Gloves At End of Game

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.

Both players were assessed five-minute fighting majors. Hathaway finished the game with eight hits, three blocked shots, and one shot on goal in 14:25 of ice time.

    Wish the Caps had shown some of this fire earlier in the game. Appreciate Garny dropping them, but kinda too little and too late.

    • Jon Sorensen says:

      Agreed. Garney is gonna Garney, and that’s a good thing. Maybe he’s leaving a message for the boys and the next game. Dallas is going to be a pretty god challenge

      • DC Scappeli says:

        I like Garney if he plays smart and I do like his physical, agitating style. but you’re right—he’s sending a message to the team to go down swinging, play with some pride. I hate Lindy Ruff, so I hope the team wakes up and beats Dallas!
