Ducks, Predators exchange verbal jabs off the ice @NHLdotcom

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Anaheim's general manager accuses the Predators of diving to draw penalties, and Ducks coach Randy Carlyle says check the video.

Nashville coach Barry Trotz dismisses the accusations from a team that racked up hundreds of penalty minutes, noting his Predators are among the NHL's least penalized.

The Western Conference series is getting as hot off the ice as on.

General manager Bill Murray told the Orange County Register on Monday his Ducks would have to start diving like the Predators to draw penalties. Carlyle said Tuesday that "video doesn't lie" when asked if he agrees with his boss.

Trotz says such talk is disrespectful to NHL players.

The Predators lead 2-1 with Game 4 on Wednesday in Nashville.
