Here’s the story from our sister paper, the San Jose Mercury News.

SAN JOSE — Sharks forward TJ Galiardi said Wednesday that Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick is guilty of “a little embellishment every now and then” in this Western Conference semifinal series as he tries to draw penalties on San Jose forwards.

“What kind of bugs me about him, I don’t know if I should say it, but a little embellishment every now and then,” Galiardi said before the team left for Los Angeles for Game 5 on Thursday at Staples Center. “You skate by and you don’t even touch him or you barely even touch him and he’s throwing his hands in the air. So that’s one of those things.

“It’s the playoffs. Everyone’s trying to draw a penalty. Whatever.”

Galiardi was referring to an incident in Game 3 when Quick momentarily lost his footing after Galiardi made contact with him in front of the Kings net. Quick lobbied for an interference call, but no penalty was assessed.
