Video: Quick robs Bickell late, saves the win for Kings

Jun 5, 2013, 12:06 AM EDT

For Jonathan Quick, his effort Tuesday was more about quality than quantity.

The L.A. Kings’ goalie only faced 20 shots in Game 3 against the Chicago Blackhawks, but he made some outstanding saves and none better than the larceny he pulled on Bryan Bickell late in the third period of a one-goal game.

Bickell picked up a loose puck off a rebound in front of the Kings’ net, but his shot was turned aside, as Quick threw out the blocker in desperation. The save preserved what turned out to be a 3-1 victory for L.A. The Kings now trail the Blackhawks 2-1 in the best-of-seven Western Conference final.

    Nah, according to Hawks fans that save was A) butt-luck or B) the result of a missed call somewhere. The Kings aren’t any good, the Hawks are just unlucky and/or getting jobbed by the refs.

      I love the way the Chicago fans whine when they get beat, the Wings with all those young players took this team to a game 7 in overtime, the Kings will win the next one and it will be tied 2-2 Hawks are nothing but a bunch of cheap shot artists, I will be laughing my butt off when the Kings move on and the Hawks will go home with their tails between their legs. They win 1 Stanley Cup in what 50 yrs, they are not even in the same league as the Red Wings who have won more Cups than the Hawks and there F.Arse Owner could ever dream of. Go Kings.

        Yeah, because the NHL routinely awards the Presidents Trophy to “farsakle” teams, dumb ass.

    Quick reminds me of a less out of control and crazy Thomas. The next US Olympic goalie really shouldn’t be much of a debate.

    “Should of been a goal because as the replay shows, the ref made the save for Quick and that’s why the Hawks lost. Whhaaaaawwwww how come we’re not going 16-0. Omg trade Kane”

    Sums up the people next to me quite nicely

    average save by an average goaltender. He’s home now sucking his thumb.

      So the “average” goaltender wins a Conn Smythe trophy and has his name engraved on the Stanley Cup? Thanks for clearing that up, Einstein.
