I was chatting with Dustin Brown regarding Logan Couture’s allegation that he “dove” during heavy second period contact in the neutral zone during Game 4 when Drew Doughty offered a pointed take on TJ Galiardi’s observation that Quick embellishes contact “every now and then” in a discussion with Lisa Dillman of the LA Times.
“It’s not even playoff talk,” Doughty told The Times after Thursday’s morning skate before Game 5. “It’s just funny to even hear that from a guy who is the biggest diver on their team. Like it’s just ridiculous he can even say that, to be honest.
“But I don’t want to get involved in that stuff. I don’t think you have to watch many (Sharks’ games). You can just watch three of his shifts and you’ll see how many times he dives. There’s been times where even the refs are telling him, just get up, because he’s diving so often.”
I’ll have more on Brown’s response to Couture in my morning skate update shortly.
