Jonathan Quick will not face NHL supplemental discipline for his verbal abuse of officials, according to Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times. Quick received a game misconduct after Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks in Game 4 of their Stanley Cup playoffs series. Immediately after the goal, Los Angeles Kings goalie Quick skated after officials to apparently give them a piece of his mind. It was the Kings' first loss in the series. Game 4 is Tuesday in San Jose. Under Rule 39.5 of the NHL rule book, "any player assessed a game misconduct penalty for abusing officials is subject to supplemental discipline." But in this case, in the middle of the postseason, the league elected not to discipline Quick. Several Kings were upset by a penalty called on Trevor Lewis late in the third period for goaltender interference. The team believed Lewis was pushed into goalie Antti Niemi by Sharks forward Patrick Marleau.
