Another chapter in the heated rivalry between the San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights was written Friday night.

With the Knights leading 5-0 with five minutes left in the third period, the Sharks spoiled Marc-Andre Fleury's shutout with a late tally. Afterward, a bit of a melee ensued.

Nic Hague took exception to a shove from behind by Marcus Sorensen. Then, everyone joined in.

The scuffle continued for several minutes afterward. Deryk Engelland ended up being the third man in during a battle between William Karlsson and Barclay Goodrow. Joe Thornton then intervened to make things all square and gave Karlsson the classic face wash.

Fleury, who didn't seem to mind that his shutout had been broken, decided to hand out some souvenirs to the San Jose crowd.

Karlsson, Hague, Engelland, Thornton, and Goodrow all received 10-minute misconducts. The Knights held on to win 5-1 for their second win over the Sharks this season.
