The Los Angeles Kings are likely to have struggling goalie Jonathan Quick back between the pipes tonight when they host the Phoenix Coyotes, according to NHL.com.

Quick was pulled in his last start last Thursday after surrendering three goals on 12 shots in an eventual 4-3 loss at San Jose.

Backup Jonathan Bernier got the nod in Saturday’s rematch with the Sharks and turned away 20 of 22 shots in a 5-2 victory.

Bernier (6-2-0, .916 SV%) also has superior numbers to Quick (9-8-2, .891 SV%) this season.

Only one of them, however, won the Conn Smythe Trophy last June and has a 10-year, $58 million contract starting next season.

After 20 starts  in 2013, Quick has yet to register his first shutout. The 27-year-old had 10 shutouts in 69 starts last season, then three more in 20 playoff games.
