Jonathan Quick pulled to start second period for Kings in Game 4
After two Ducks goals in the first period, Kings coach Darryl Sutter pulled Quick for Martin Jones in Game 4.
Quick gave up two goals in the first period against the Ducks and got the hook when the teams came out to start the second. However it was hard to say that Quick was the reason why the Kings were down. If anything it seemed like a move designed to send a serious wakeup call not only to Quick but the Kings team as a whole.
With John Gibson getting the surprising start in the Anaheim nets, iet left us with a matchup of two goalies who had never played an NHL game coming into the season. You could have gotten some astronomical odds at the start of the season that those two would meet in a postseason game ... at the NHL level.
Jones appeared in 19 games this season for the Kings and played very well, allowing the Kings to trade Ben Scrivens. Jones had a .934 save percentage and a 12-6-0 record. Still, replacing Quick in a playoff game is an awfully big move by Sutter.
