from Dan Bickley of the Arizona Republic,
“You can almost feel it creeping in,” Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney said. “This is something we can’t let go on any further, in my opinion.”
Coyotes coach Dave Tippett has seen it happen over the course of the regular season. So has New York Rangers coach John Tortorella, who just accused the opposing New Jersey Devils of embellishment in the Eastern Conference finals.
“I can’t really disagree with him,” Philadelphia Flyers star Danny Briere said. “They did the same thing to us.”
The subject brings a look of disgust on Shane Doan’s face.
“I don’t think anybody in hockey thinks this should be anywhere in our sport,” Doan said. “We’ve always taken pride in not doing that, not being that way. You get up and get off the ice.
“In this sport, you hear the legendary stories of guys who came off the ice cut up and bleeding all over the place. They get up and they keep going. They keep playing. It’s Bobby Clarke missing teeth. That’s hockey.”
