Midway through the third period in last night’s contest between the San Jose Sharks and Nashville Predators, Sharks captain Joe Pavelski decided to ramp things up a notch by throwing down with Preds superstar Ryan Johansen. The Joe vs Jo scrap featured more pushing and pulling than it did punching, but Pavelski did manage to land a hard shot right on the button.

For what it’s worth, the Sharks would go on to win the contest 4-1, extending their win streak to 3 games. The team now improves to 7-5-0 after a rocky start to the season. Captain Pavelski now has four goals, seven points and 17 penalty minutes in the team’s 12 games.
