From Newark, NJ, take Interstate 95 north to Connecticut Highway 8. Then hop on Connecticut Highway 15 north. About 50 miles east of the New York-Connecticut border, you'll hit Exit 61 for Whitney Avenue, downtown Hamden.
Hang a right on Whitney and head up the road about a mile. Keep a look out on your left. Eventually you'll stumble upon Rainbow Cleaners, an unassuming, decades-old business owned by Hamden High School hockey coach Bill Verneris, a former star forward at nearby Quinnipiac University.
Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick grew up around the corner and used to work there.
"I worked there for a bit; (Verneris) let me get away with a lot," Quick said. "I was employed there; I didn't really do too much work."
Now, 10 years after leaving Hamden, his family, his friends and Rainbow Cleaners behind, Quick is back on the East Coast, playing for a Stanley Cup in a crease opposite New Jersey Devils legend Martin Brodeur, perhaps the greatest goaltender in NHL history.
