SAN JOSE - He lost the game.
Then he lost his cool.
He won't be losing a lot of money, though.
Los Angeles Kings puck-stopper Jonathan Quick was assessed a 10-minute misconduct for verbal abuse of the officials after Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks — a call that comes with an automatic $200 fine — but the L.A. Times reported Sunday he won't face any supplemental discipline from the NHL.
Quick was irate after surrendering Logan Couture's power-play game-winner in the sudden-death session, presumably because the Sharks started overtime with a five-on-three advantage after penalties to Robyn Regehr and Trevor Lewis late in regulation.
“He’s a passionate guy,” said Kings centre Anze Kopitar. “Emotions are flying high and it burst up a little bit. He probably crossed the line a little bit.
“But it just shows the guy cares. You want to have a guy like that in your net.”
