LOS ANGELES AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — After his team dropped a 2-1 decision to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the best-of-seven 2012 Western Conference Finals, now finding themselves trailing the Kings in the series, 3-0, Phoenix Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett began grasping at straws.

“Personally, I’ve talked about this in a lot of meetings with Don [Maloney], our general manager, that the game is turning a little dishonest and it’s embellishment by players,” Tippett fumed. “When it’s done well, it’s very hard for the referees, very hard, because if you fall down near the boards, or you drop your stick, or you throw your head back, you’re putting the referee in a very tough situation.”

The reason for the slumped shoulders and dejection came just 1:18 after Kings forward Oscar Moller scored his second goal of the game at 14:04 of the third period to tie the game, 2-2.

At the 16:23 mark, Flames center Daymond Langkow took advantage of a defensive lapse by the Kings to score an easy goal that gave the Flames their final margin of victory. Read more of this post
