Mikey Anderson and Joey Anderson can't stop competing even when they can't get on the ice.

The Los Angeles Kings defenseman and New Jersey Devils forward engaged in an epic shootout competition in their family's garage in Minnesota during the NHL pause.

You might remember the Andersons from their dual solo laps in Mikey's NHL debut Feb. 29. 

This time, the brothers headed outside and took turns shooting on each other for a "seven-game series" with 15 shots per game, five each per period, with the winner scoring the most goals.

Mikey, perhaps unsurprisingly since he's a defenseman prone to blocking more shots, came out victorious, earning the highly coveted grand prize: A four-pack roll of toilet paper from his dad Gerry.

Mikey might've been victorious, but we're all winners for the Andersons having shared this.
