Quick made 29 saves on 31 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights. Quick finished the year positively by taking out the playoff-bound squad from Vegas. He went 16-23-7 in 46 starts, posting a 3.38 GAA and an .888 save percentage. It's easily the worst year of the 33-year-old's career, but he's signed for four more years, which is quite good for job security even as Jack Campbell provided some electric starts down the stretch.
Quick will start against the visiting Golden Knights on Saturday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports. Even though the Kings have long been out of the playoff picture, it would be bad optics for Quick's season to otherwise end with his performance Monday, when he surrendered a season-high seven goals on 25 shots to the Flames. His final opponent is a playoff-bound Vegas team averaging 3.01 goals per game this season -- 13th in the NHL.
Quick was pulled in the third period after giving up seven goals on 25 shots in a 7-2 loss to Calgary on Monday. Well, that escalated quickly. Despite the Flames limiting Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan to under 12:30 of ice time, Calgary still lit Quick up in the third period, scoring all seven goals of the night at even strength. His GAA for the year is now 3.41, a full goal higher than last year's total, summing up just how disastrous this year has been for Quick.
Quick will patrol the blue paint against Calgary on Monday. Quick will face the West's top team at a good time; with the Flames clinching the conference's top seed already, they benched several of their top players for Monday's contest. The 33-year-old could use the help as he's sporting an ugly 3.31 GAA and .890 save percentage, both the worst marks of his career.
Quick stopped 36 of 38 shots but was stuck with the shootout loss in a 3-2 game with the Canucks on Thursday. This was a strong bounce-back performance from Quick, who was pulled after allowing five goals on 11 shots Tuesday in Edmonton. Quick owns a 15-22-7 record with a 3.31 GAA and an .890 save percentage. With the Kings out of the playoff picture, it wouldn't be surprising to see Jack Campbell draw a couple of the starts away from Quick over the remainder of the season.
