Cam Talbot wasn’t happy with the officiating after the Edmonton Oilers‘ Game 4 loss Wednesday night.

The goaltender implied that he might need to start faking contact to get calls after Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry touched him in the crease on Ryan Getzlaf‘s goal early in the second period of Game 4.

Oilers head coach Todd McLellan challenged the play looking for a goaltender interference ruling, but the call on the ice was upheld.

“I thought that was pretty obvious,” Talbot told reporters postgame, according to Sportsnet’s Gene Principe. “(Perry) ran into my bIocker/pad. I play with integrity and don’t flop … but maybe I have to.”

Talbot and the Oilers lost the game on Jakob Silfverberg‘s overtime winner that came 45 seconds into the extra frame.

The series is tied 2-2 with Game 5 scheduled for Friday night in Anaheim.
