Thought that deserved a 2 for unsportsmanlike more than Carcillo (who wasnt penalized but people are making it out to be more than what it is)
That's not out of anyone's playbook. He tried to get a call, for something that wasn't close, and didn't get it. It's not the first time he's ever done it, certainly won't be the last.
Which there's nothing wrong with. It's OK to fake, dive, and embellish. Just ask the NHL what they do about it.
