Video: Duncan Keith scores from deep vs. Jonathan Quick

Jun 8, 2013, 8:49 PM EDT

Goalies never want to allow goals, but if they have to choose, most would probably agree that they’d prefer to avoid center-ice and other far-away embarrassments.

Jonathan Quick is generally accepted as an elite goalie, but he’s had his moments of long-range humiliation. Duncan Keith celebrated his return from a one-game suspension by scoring this 1-0 goal from around the blueline in Game 5 on Saturday:

Again, it’s not the only pie-in-the-face goal Quick has allowed against defensemen. Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris got one past him in last year’s Western Conference finals:

St. Louis Blues standout Alex Pietrangelo got the best of him in March 2011, too:

Tonight’s goal smarts because it puts a desperate Kings squad in a tough spot, but at least the 27-year-old shows he can shake these low moments off.

    Welcome back Duncs!!! Great period boys, keep up the pressure, don’t let up one bit. Kings are not to be taken lightly, even at this point.

    Its weird how he seems to have the best mental focus in the game, but when it breaks down boy does it happen in a big way, usually in a bad time too. That second goal wasn’t much better. Hopefully the Kings can recover

    Quick is so overrated. He makes lots of pretty saves, but he let’s these weak goals go in and at crucial times.

    Overrated? Won the Con Smyte last year, literally won the cup for the Kings last year and this year was leading the all goalies in almost every category. Please tell me how he is overrated?

    Can I please hear more about Quicks pads. Didn’t hear enough about it in the first period.

    That’s a good way of putting it. No matter how well LA played, a pie in the face is the only way to describe Quick’s play tonight.
