Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick might not have won Game 1, but he instilled a lot of doubt into shooters’ minds coming into Sunday’s Game 2 nonetheless. His evening ended up being as rough as it was short, though, as you can see.
Quick didn’t hesitate to accept the blame following that defeat, as CSN Chicago’s Nina Falcone reports.
“They did their job at home, now we have to go do our job at home,” Quick said. “I haven’t done my job on the road.”
The Kings are indeed 1-7 away from Los Angeles, yet it’s unfair to lay it all at the 27-year-old netminder’s feet.
Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville provided interesting perspective on his opponents’ goaltender, according to the Chicago Sun-Times’ Mark Lazerus.
“I still think that’s going to be an ongoing challenge with him,” Quenneville said. “Some nights it goes in.”
