Tensions are running high with the Sharks as the team is on the brink of elimination going into Tuesday night's Game 6 of the Western Conference final against the Blues.
Sharks center Lukas Radil, who hasn't played since May 2, and backup goalie Aaron Dell were seen getting into a skirmish at the end of morning skate. Cameras caught Radil swinging his stick at Dell.

Insert "this is fine" gif. French-Canadian outlet TVA captured the exchange on camera.
The Sharks already enter Game 6 without two key injured players in center Tomas Hertl and defenseman Erik Karlsson. Captain Joe Pavelski is also a game-time decision.
Down three-games-to-two in the best-of-seven series, the Sharks will have to overcome injuries and maintain their composure to keep their season alive.
