Tommy Wingels offered Dustin Brown a chance to drop the gloves on Monday. Twice.

Both times, Brown declined, according to the Sharks’ forward.

“I guess he doesn’t want to own up to it,” Wingels said on Tuesday. “There’s many other opportunities, right?”

Brown was booed by the Sharks’ home crowd just about every time he touched the puck in the Kings’ 1-0 win. It was the first time the Kings captain played against San Jose since he tore up rookie Tomas Hertl’s knee on Dec. 19, with a knee-on-knee hit.

The Sharks play the Kings once more this season, at SAP Center on April 3. If the playoffs started today, they would be first round opponents.
