Found June 05, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
from Kevin Allen of USA Today, Quick had a 22-save shutout in Monday’s 4-0 victory to lower his goals-against average to 1.36 and improve his save percentage to .950. Quick’s postseason goals-against average is the best recorded by a Stanley Cup Final goalie, with a minimum of 10 games played, since Frank Brimsek’s 1.25 in 12 games for the Boston Bruins in 1939. “He’s a little different than any other goalie we’ve faced so far,” Zajac said. “He plays low.” The NHL didn’t start recording save percentages until 1968, and Quick has the best mark for that. Jacques Plante posted a .949 save percentage over 10 games for the St. Louis Blues in 1969. Plante and Brimsek are Hall of Famers. With Quick’s play this season, the Milford, Conn., native undoubtedly has made himself a more attractive candidate for the USA’s No. 1 goalie job if NHL players go to the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. more

Dee Karl: The Quick & The Dread

Do you know how long I had to think before I even came up with a headline as dumb as that one? Days.

Joel Quenneville is on there as a Coach...

Power Outage: Devils Power Play Going Cold at Wrong Time

We get it. That Jonathan Quick fellow is rather good at this game. He’s kept the Devils to just two goals in three full contests, and is as big a reason as any the Kings are one game away from hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup. But this New Jersey squad is not one starved for offensive firepower, especially with the man advantage. However, their inability to cash in on the power...

''Hey, every minute...

Kings could finally bask in a Stanley Cup moment

A fan outside Staples Center on Monday seemed to capsulize the plight of Kings fans. Above the number on the back of his Kings jersey, instead of his name, were the words love and hate. Kings fans have a moment they can simply love. After 45 years, three owners, two lockouts, one bankruptcy and countless promises, the Kings are poised to deliver. With a victory tonight over the...

Another LA media blunder: Jonathan Swift
