Quick turned away 20 of 22 shots in Saturday's overtime win over the Blackhawks. A solid performance from Quick, who has allowed just four goals in his last three starts. The 29-year-old advances to 11-7-1 on the year with a .917 save percentage. Considering he's picked up only one regulation loss in his last seven games and is starting almost every night, you can continue rolling out the workhorse with confidence.
Quick was the first goalie off in the Saturday morning skate, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports. As a result, he's expected to start in goal Saturday night versus the Blackhawks. Quick has yeilded two goals combined over his past two starts, though only one of those performances -- a road match against the Panthers on Nov. 23 -- resulted in a regulation win. Quick allowed four goals on just 22 shots from the Blackhawks on Nov. 2, so he'll look to avenge that loss if he ends up as the confirmed goalie, as expected.
Quick stopped 27 of the 28 shots he faced Thursday in Tampa Bay, but lost in a shootout to drop his record to 10-7-1. Quick had won three of his last four starts heading into this game, but was out-dueled by Ben Bishop despite posting another quality performance. He will have to be on top of his game if he wants to get back in the win column when his Kings face the Blackhawks on Saturday.
As expected, Quick will be in the crease in Wednesday's game against the Lightning, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Quick was phenomenal in his last outing, stopping 33 of 34 shots en route a to a 3-1 win Monday over the Panthers. On Wednesday he'll take on a Lightning team that has been surprisingly poor offensively this season, averaging just 2.41 goals scored per game, ninth worst in the NHL.
Quick was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate Wednesday and is expected to start against the Lightning, LA Kings Insider reports. Quick has been a bit hit-or-miss as of late, but is coming off a nice outing against the Panthers in which he stopped 33 of the 34 shots he faced to up his save percentage to .915 and lower his GAA to 2.39 on the season. He'll carry a 10-7-0 record into Wednesday's matchup with the Lightning, and the netminder could benefit from the opposition being without a few forwards.
