Couture accuses Kings captain Brown of diving

San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture says Dustin Brown is guilty of embellishment.

Couture accused the Kings captain of diving during San Jose’s 2-1 win in Game 4 on Tuesday, and chalked it up to Brown’s preferred style of play.

Here’s the incident in question, which occurred early in the second period:
