LOS ANGELES (CBS Sports) — Another playoff series for the San Jose Sharks, another round of diving accusations flying like Greg Louganis off the high dive.

After going through the embellishment conversation in the first round brought on by Vancouver’s Kevin Bieksa, this time it’s the Sharks who fired the first shot at Los Angeles. Sharks forward TJ Galiardi came out and very shyly pointed out that the Kings have a diver and his name is Jonathan Quick.

Galiardi said, “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 playoffs. Everyone’s trying to draw a penalty. Whatever.”

Galiardi wasn’t the only one to claim a King dives. Logan Couture — who was called out by Bieksa directly — pointed the finger at Dustin Brown.

As you would expect, those comments made it to the Kings and on Thursday after the morning skate, the Kings had their retort. Ironically, it sounded an awful lot like San Jose’s response to Vancouver’s accusations.
