Video: Sharks’ Polak snaps, Blues make him pay on the power play
San Jose Sharks defenseman Roman Polak took serious issue with St. Louis Blues forward Dmitrij Jaskin during the second period, as the two eventually threw off the gloves off in a fight in the corner.
In the process, Polak let his emotions get the better of him -- he snapped -- by also taking a roughing minor to give the Blues a power play.
The Blues made him -- and the Sharks -- pay on a blast from Robby Fabbri, who was a game-time decision for Monday’s contest.
Polak got plenty of mileage out of his roughing minor. Wow!— Kerry Fraser (@kfraserthecall) May 24, 2016
The Sharks tied the game at 3-3 before the end of the second period on Joe Pavelski’s 11th of the playoffs. Pavelski struck again in the third period, giving San Jose the 4-3 lead.
