Video: Jonathan Quick makes another improbable save

Apr 30, 2012, 11:38 PM EDT

The Los Angeles Kings survived Game 1 as much as they won it, but they’ve been pretty dominant through most of Game 2 against the St. Louis Blues. In both cases, Jonathan Quick justified the praise he’s received (from Rogie Vachon and others) as Brian Elliott struggled.

He’s also gotten a little luck here and there, with this goal-line save being perhaps the shining example of the positive bounces he occasionally receives.

Somewhere, someone is probably making a cheesy pun about “needing to be Quick to be lucky” or something along those lines. (Wait, did I just do that? Oops.)

    Not to take anything away from Quick or the Kings but I have never seen a hockey game with this many lucky bounces for one team.

    I’m a huge Kings fan and I think Quick is on of the best but he can’t expect to be this lucky every night.

    I think he may be the best goalie in the NHL right now…he’s had an outstanding year. I hope his luck changes before he knocks my blues out of the playoffs. Not looking good.

    God bless Jonathan Quick !

    This has to rank as one of the best goal-tending performances which I’ve ever seen ! … watching the game tonight, memories of Vladislav Tretiak completely stoning the Canadiens during that unforgettable New Year’s Eve game back in ’75, came gushing to my mind ! … friends, we have our rearguard protected by the “very best” in the business and so God willing, nothing can now stand in our way, despite what they say about us !

    One of the luckiest bounces of the night – the puck bouncing over Mitchell’s stick for now good reason – led to a Blues’ goal. It goes both ways but you tend to only notice the ones that hurt your team. Also, I agree, if you listened to the broadcast without knowing the score you would of thought is was STL who was cruising to a 2-0 series lead. WTF was that.
