07:23 PM ET 05.20 | Los Angeles Kings netminder Jonathan Quick will not be disciplined any further by the NHL for his Game 3 rant about the officials, per a report from Helene Elliot of the Los Angeles Times. Quick received a game misconduct for his rant but Elliot says it will end there and the issue will be buried. Obviously Sharks fans will take issue with the NHL deciding to end its discipline of Quick where they did, especially after being blasted with punishment in the past 48 hours. Conspiracy theorists will claim the league is protecting Quick since he plays for Los Angeles -- a market that hockey needs to be popular in to be successful. But at the end of the day, games are won and lost on the ice and not in league offices, no matter how much they interfere. The Sharks would have liked to get Quick out of net for a game but they'll just have to beat the Kings the hard way.
