Thornton drops gloves on opening faceoff against the Leafs!

Thronton was having none of it.

Things got rough early in Toronto on Thursday night. 

We're not sure what it was exactly that set off San Jose Sharks veteran forward Joe Thornton but it was clear from the opening faceoff that he was not the least bit happy. 

This resulted in Thornton immediately dropping the gloves on the opening faceoff with Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri, and honestly I have to wonder what the hell Kadri was thinking.

While it was largely an uneventful exchange between the two men, it was very clear that Thornton was the much more powerful man as he rag-dolled Kadri around before eventually pulling him down to the ice.
