Quick turned aside 33 of 34 shots in Monday's win over the Panthers. Quick rebounded well after allowing four en route to being pulled in Sunday's loss, withstanding a late barrage in which the Panthers sent 15 shots on goal in both the second and third periods. The 29-year-old has now won three of his last four and has started 17 of the team's 21 contests.
Quick will man the goal Monday against Florida, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports. Quick's performance this season has been about on-par with past regular seasons. This may be hard to believe, as the Jonathan Quick that people remember is the superhuman who shows up and dominates the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The reality is that Quick has really only had one stellar regular season (2012-13), where he had a save percentage over .920. Quick will take on a Florida team that is coming off a heartbreaking loss to the Rangers on Saturday, and it will be interesting to see how this young group responds.
Quick allowed four goals on 21 shots before being pulled at the end of the second period of Sunday's loss to the Hurricanes. Quick has been inconsistent in the month of November, allowing just six total goals in three wins but surrendering at least three goals in four losses. When he's on, the 29-year-old is one of the more reliable options in net, but his .910 save percentage and 2.47 GAA are not quite at the level he's capable of.
Quick will start in the crease Sunday against the Hurricanes, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports. After a night off Friday, Quick will return to the net for Sunday's afternoon tilt against the Jets. The netminder has been a bit hit or miss this season, but will look for another good outing coming off a 36-save effort Tuesday against the Flyers. He'll face a Hurricanes club Sunday that's nearly as poor offensively, scoring just 1.89 goals per game to rank third-worst in the league.
Quick will be in the crease in Tuesday's game against the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Quick hasn't been great of late, posting a 1-1-0 record with a 3.03 GAA and .880 save percentage in his last two appearances. He does, however, have a fantastic matchup Tuesday, as the Flyers' have only averaged 1.88 goals scored per game this season, second worst in the NHL.
